Climb up initial slab at the large V-slot to reach the bottom of the first seam/crack in the bulge. Good gear can be had here, but it takes serious skill to get it. A strenuous, sequency stretch leads to a "Thank God" hold, followed by less-intensive, but still demanding climbing that gradually eases off as one ascends to the anchor.


Look for the series of discontinuous seams starting at the lower bulge and running most of the way up the face, lying between the cracks of Starstruck and O'Ryan's Belt.


Cams to 2", with duplicates in the micro to small range. Offset wireds and Tri-Cams help, as well.
Be aware, that while bomber gear is possible along the entire way, it is not easy. Strenuous and devious placements are the norm on this route.
