Ascend the slab just right of where the big overlap meets the ground. Belay using the crack below the large flake at the overlap weakness. Climb the flake and mantle to then clip the first bolt. Great feldspar crystals and good friction will get you past this bolt (crux) and to a second, which is the first bolt on the second pitch of Walk in the High Country. Continue to belay at some blocks.
Far left end, left of Devils Slide. Where the overlap meets the ground and right of the start of Walk in the High Country.
Trad with two bolts.

This climb can be done in one pitch. It's about 180' to the top. Medium to large pro can be found under the overlap. Take a long runner. There is a lot of lichen up high. There are no top anchors, but there are large boulders at the top that can be slung for an anchor.
