Description 

Start in a left-facing corner 20' downhill from Dominator, by a large pine tree.

Climb the corner past a bolt (5.8) to a ledge. The cracks to the left of the corner can also be climbed (5.10a).

Step right (5.8) and climb a V-dihedral with a good crack to a 2-bolt anchor.

Belay from a small ledge at the top, and rappel.

Protection 

1 bolt plus gear to 3". 2-bolt anchor.

Did the "10a" variation. Felt about 5.9. Pretty close to a bomb route. The 5.8 variation to the right (with the bolt) looks like the better choice. The rock on the cracks is grungy and questionable. I angled slightly left to hit the arete, then back right on a "slab" to rejoin the other variation at a fist crack. The upper dihedral is a little dirty, but at least it's not going to fall off on you.

Climbed this route today - I thought it was a good route, but it will be better when it gets cleaned of the lichen and some loose gravel.
