Description 

Climb up the ramp and reach up right to a small detached block. Getting your feet on nothing, smear over and reach up right again to a decent ledge (or follow the rather thin finger cracks straight up for a couple of moves). From the ledge trend up and left, aiming for the noticeable U-slot in the huge detached flake above. Grunt through the slot and continue up on somewhat thin moves on the face above until you can reach slightly better (if sloping) holds on the right and pull up to another stance. Easy climbing from there gains the top.

Location 

Start @ base of ramp just right of Thumb Press and left of the "GLD" graffiti.

Protection 

Trees @ Anchor. Incorporating bolt at top could be possible.
