The central line of the crag. Scramble up a few meters on a ramp to belay. The opening moves traverse hard left past a bolt into a round scoop. Climb out of the scoop up thin cracks (yellow and blue TCUs) then make laybacky moves on flake holds past several more bolts to gain a big fault (optional #4 camalot in the fault). Continue up a slabbier face to the top.


40m rappel to get down. Also possible to rap from the Jugular Vein anchor or scramble down a trail in a gully on the north end of the crag back to the base.


9 or 10 bolts, blue and yellow TCUs (possible orange TCU as well), possible #4 Camalot.
