Description 

Climb the initial slab past two bolts (crux) to reach the base of the cracks. Optional gear belay at a small stance up and left (3" cam helpful). Follow either of the two cracks, which are about the same difficulty, to an alcove, then either stem up on the left, or pull up steep holds on the right, to a crack system leading to the top.

Location 

Start at the right side of the Belay Seat Ledge, just right of White Streak. The route follows the two long, right-leaning cracks above. Rappel twice with one rope, using an intermediate bolted rap station (straight down from the top anchor, but well to climber's right of the route).

Protection 

Standard rack, two bolts. Bolted anchor at the top. Extra slings to manage rope drag, if doing the route in one pitch.
