Description 

The star rating only applies to the second pitch. The first is a bomb and the last is non trivial.

Start by climbing up the obvious vertical crack that looks like it would be great climbing if it weren't for the solid line of thick bushes along the entire way. Battle your way through this jungle to the outside ledge just left of the big ledge on the first pitch of East Wall.

Pitch two climbs up where the second pitch of East Wall goes, but instead of traversing left, continue up the splitter crack above with turns into face and several small roofs. Look for the gigantic horn shaped horn (you'll know when you see it) sling it and find a good place just above to build an anchor. This is a pretty fun pitch and a great, more adventurous variation to East Wall if you so choose to climb it that way.

Pitch three is low angle slabs and dikes to the top.
