A fun route, beware the 5.12 upper face.

Description 

A nice mix of slab and face climbing with a crack thrown in here and there. Climb up the slab to the left of the arete past a bolt to gain the horizontal crack and move right to the arete. Head up the short face to reach the sloping ledge above and then traverse off left into the trees.

For a more challenging finish, climb the 3rd pitch of The Exorcist straight up the bolted face (3 bolts) from the ledge.

Location 

At the right end of the Den, this is the leftmost line before heading uphill. Start left of the Exorcist on the slab to the left of the arete.

Protection 

1 bolt, fixed gear in horizontal, bring a standard rack

Awesome Route, beware of the 5.12 (A0 for me) bolted section above. If you thought the 5.10 crux was hard, walk off to the left on the ledge. Single rack to 3", some fixed gear, but don't trust it.
