This seldom done route starts up a thin right-slanting crack (crux) and then works back left into the widening crack above which splits the formation.
Gear to 3", gear belay or traverse up and right to anchors on Bum Steer

Decent route to get trad experience. The start is difficult. My leader, a budding trad climber, ended up clipping the first bolt on Bum Steer for peace of mind before moving into the crack. There is a lot of loose rock in the crack about midway up, where it widens. Luckily the climbing eases up a lot in that area, so just be careful.
