Made of Silk is the route going up the left facing...


Crack in left-facing corner. Follow corner for ~40 feet, then head right to bolt-protected face moves.


Route is directly above the top of the approach trail. Look for a slightly-inverted, left-facing corner, with a bulgy, rounded arete to the right. Rap off chains.


Gear to 2", one bolt, chain anchors.

I led this route yesterday and thought is was really nice and appropriate for the grade. Lots of varied moves with a nice exit sequence.
