Description 

Scramble up easy ground past two bolts to reach a ledge and the third bolt. Make a few moves up the arete to the right then trend back left to clip the fourth bolt. Continue up to reach the left facing flake system. This is steep and pumpy but is over with relatively quickly. Mantle the ledge to reach the chains. One of the best and most popular routes on the wall.

Location 

Right in the center of the wall beginning from the road. Two low bolts protect the rambly mantles to reach a ledge and the first test.

Protection 

7 bolts and chains

This is a great route with several fun and cruxy sections.
Last crux (to me) came right at the last bolt with a potential to smack onto a small ledge if you were to botch the clip.
If red pointing, it's nice to hang a long draw on the last bolt so the clip can be made from the side pulls
