Description 

Crux is about 20-25 feet off the deck with a slight bulge crack. I won't give the move away, but the seemingly obvious move is most likely not the easiest.

Location 

Start in the chimney on the east side coming to a ledge leading to a dirty bulgy hand crack. At this point move up and left, around the corner to a ramp with nice protection on the right side (3-4" camalots). The route ends with the Conn Finish which is a step across from the small blade on the left to the main summit. This is a great airy move with good hands and feet.

Protection 

Nuts, Cams up to 3", long runners to avoid rope drag and to sling available horns.

Back up slings on summit as necessary to rappel. Possible to repel off the north side to a saddle and climb Sharp immediately North of Grace Note Spire.

Yeah, sounds like it starts on what I called East Cracks.
