Nathletic Endeavor

Description 

This route is located on the right side of the wall. Climb up to the ledge, clip the first bolt and you're looking at the crux. Lie back on some crimpers and away you go. After you've made the move, follow the next bolt with some smears up to the top. There is a couple of bolts at the top to set up an anchor.

The way off the top:
Going off the backside is probably the natural instinct, but gets a little tricky. The down climb is easiest by going down the spine/arete directly east, climbers right, and then wrapping around the second crack leading you back to the ledge on Nathletic Endeavor and hopping down to the ground.

You can also use the rap chains for the routes to the left.

2 bolts, bolted anchor

This climb offers either a hard sequence the the left of the first bolt or a slightly contrived use of the crack to the right. Might as well do it as long as you're here.
