Description 

Begin on a ledge at the base of the north face just left of the arete. Unprotected face climbing on large holds (5.8 - 5.9) gain the arete. Continue on the arete before moving onto the west face past a bolt to the top.

Protection 

Small to medium stoppers and brass plus a few small TCU's protect the arete. One bolt is located on the west face before the topout. An anchor can be made by slinging horns and supplementing with medium cams. Walk off to the east.

I was so blown away it is hard to rate it. Scenic, inspiring, and intimidating at beginning and end.
