A bit of an awkward step onto a ledge will bring you to a crack and your first piece. Work your way up the crack and to the left. Pull out to a juggy, dirty finish


Just past the arete, about 10 feet right of past Stretch or Sketch, which is the only mixed route on the lower tier.


Nuts and cams, nothing bigger than a #2

I gave this a 5.8, because that's the standing rating, but it felt a bit "short and stout" for a 5.8, compared with some of the other 5.8s at Ship. Maybe that's because I was desperately avoiding the hand jam on a route called Jam Scam....
