Start on the arete then Head into the left trending crack with a variety of placements. Tricky moves over bulge to a rest on some plates to the left where you contemplate your next moves. Surmount the roof with a few awkward moves into a wide crack (#4 C4 placement) that heads to the right and narrows the higher you go. Higher up the steepness lessens as the crack widens. Use anchors for Stand up comedy or build anchor using gear.
Gear to 5", largest piece i carried was a #4 C4. Two #3's were nice to have. If building an anchor wide gear is necessary.

Thought it was a possible FA but after research, I found a name (call me ishmael) and grade (5.7). Im not sure where the route is meant to follow, I followed the crack system and found the grade to be harder than the stated 5.7, Closer to 5.9/easy 10. I felt that grade to be on par compared to other trad routes in the Pinnacles. The way i climbed it required one committing/ Awkward fist jam to get established in the right slanting crack.
