Description 

This is one of the easier routes on the cliff. Start at the left side of the main enclave. Climb up a low angle ramp with cracks and then pass over a roof. Climb the steep fracture with lots of good handholds to reach a ledge with a boulder and rap slings. Belay here or link pitches with good rope management. Climb up the large ramp to the left, staying in the corner and passing by the bolted anchor which is out on the face to the left. Climb out the left side of another roof to a bolted anchor at a stance out on the arete.

The steep flared crack continuing straight up from the top of this route is a Jay Smith route and supposedly goes at 5.11.

Rappel to the ground with two ropes, or you can probably get down with one 70m (or maybe even a 60?) if you swing over to the anchor on Alamo. You can also rap over to anchor on Pygmy Village (5.12) if you want to set a toprope on that climb.

Protection 

Pro to 3" w/ some shoulder-length runners.
