Description 

Often wet, but when dry this is an excellent route. Although the cracks may be a bit dirty. Like many of the other, this was a cherry first ascent climbed all free first time up. The belay bolts at the top were added later. From a ledge about 40 feet up trend up and left following natural gear features eventually taking you near the wet,broken chimney/crack then back right (crux) to a great belay ledge with bolts.

Location 

Starts on the right edge of the broad black streak in the middle of the wall. From a ledge about 40 feet up trend up and left.

Protection 

Standard NC gear rack. Nothing special.
