Climb the dihedral with a small finger crack (crux), after surmounting the finger crack work left and then angle up right to the top, basically follow the easiest way to the top after the finger crack. A fun route. Closed for many years but re-opened as of Fall 2005.
This route is immediate around the corner left from Good Knight
. The rock is lighter in color here due to the recent rock fall.
Standard rack emphasis on smaller gear. Standard top rope set up.

Once you're at the first roof to work around, there is a pigeon nest with active occupants on the right. If disturbed, they tend to dive-bomb at you... which is a bit annoying once you are at the immediate next crux requiring focus..

What a fantastic crux. Have seen it climbed in many different fashions and tried them all, each equally as fun. Wish the route had more climbing like it. Avoid it on wet days because you get no friction for smearing and because it activates the dried pigeon poop and you get lungs full of that awful smell right before the crux.
Goes great on gear. Few small nuts and a small cam.
