A moderate outing up the cleanest rock to the top of the formation.
Save me a thousand words and look at my paint by numbers photo of the crag to locate the start of the route.
Bolts off the ground protect the 5.9 crux getting into the crack. When the crack jogs hard left, head right across the slab to the bolted anchor on the white tombstone above. Climb straight over this anchor to another pair of bolts 20' higher up the slab, belay here.
Pitch 2: Head up left off the belay into the chimney-ish slot. Continue up the slab above to the summit in a long 200' stretch, or stop and belay again at the two bolt rap station you'll pass on your left.

Descent is via 4, ~75' rappels. Rap to the station you just passed, and again to another one left of the route (Reef Bounce anchor.) Rap again to the Threat Arete anchor, and once again to the ground.
