Surmount four distinct choss ledges (choss ledge 1, 2,3, and summit base camp). Hang out on summit base camp ledge (slightly uncomfortable squatting under the start of the actual climbing on the route) until your heart rate slows down. Several acclimatization trips may be necessary.

Boulder off the ledge to a mono clip (3rd bolt), then paddle up far spaced pockets and edges to the only jugs on the route. Shake out here as best you can before beginning the footsie, techie-turvy redpoint crux. Lots of ways to do it, but all the holds are smaller than you want. Try and remember how to do the last few meters to the anchor (because you didn't work it when you were hanging the draws, did you numbnuts?!!)

Success. Pull your pants down and victory whip.


Second bolt line to the right leading up the sandstone choss from the rope chair thingie. First line left of the scary looking 8b tufa.


Bolts. Lots and lots.
