If you're chasing the sun this route may be an attraction as the sun is tracking around south. The route itself is not a classic compared to others in the immediate vicinity. Opening moves are muggy but probably accessed from the large boulder right. The route actually climbs on the right naturally and is semi-forced. Fun enough climbing and worth getting on if in the area but if you're saving yourself for better just that as there are plenty of quality lines nearby.

Still one Bomber bolt anchor on the summit as of 2/11/14. Good rap ring, please keep it that way by not TRing through the anchor and rapping down when last party is finished.

Neat moves on a contrived arete. Using the big holds will keep you on the right low angle side of the arete.
