Begin just left of Triple Double on the prow feature rather than stemming the chossy corner. Follow the bolts and resist the urge to stray left, the rock is crumbly. On the good rock, pull big moves between sinker pockets up very steep terrain. At the base of the bulge find a good rest. Using some heel toe funkery at the base of the bulge work up and left to reach a pocket you can clip from, then punch it to the anchors. Sweet if you get it right, not so if read wrong. Good luck!

Awesome pitch, steep and poweful crux. I left a biner on the second or third bolt to prevent a big swing into the tree when cleaning. It'll probably get bootied but just in case someone reads this, it's pretty useful on the way down!
