Description 

Once you make it to the bottom of The Transept, build a gear anchor for the belayer (there's a ledge right behind you). The route is a short, overhanging crack that leads up to a roof and a tough mantle. Keep a #2 C4 at the ready for a funky placement just over the roof. Alternatively, you can bail right for a much easier (but run-out) finish.

Location 

The best bet would be to scope it out from the canal trail and scramble up the hillside.

At the top of the route, you'll have to build a gear anchor. The walk off is easy, it looks like a tower from the road, but it's attached at the back.

Protection 

Bring gear to 3 inches and you'll be set for everything including the belayers anchor.
