Description 

The start of this route is actually on top of a pillar that you can climb via a fourth class scramble up and around the right side of the pillar. On top of the pillar the route starts off on the face to the left of the belay block following the bolt line on small ledges. Some slightly pumpy moves but very good route. Because you start about 45 feet off the ground already, there's no danger of decking, but the exposure adds to the fun of it. The belay may be a bit tricky. You can climb an irregular crack/gully below it and make it a two pitch route, but the first pitch wouldn't be as fun.

Location 

Atop the slender pillar you encounter shortly after the trail reaches the base of the cliffs. Bottom of pillar has a relatively flat area to leave your stuff and belay for the lower pitches

Protection 

6 or 7 bolts
