The crux comes early on this and involves thin crack and face climbing with thin gear (small wires and tiny cams) on dubious rock before it opens up and turns into an easy chimney. Take at least one 4" piece and several slings.

Up high the route traverses left to join Moveable Feast on the arete above it's last bolt - remember to protect your follower. Easy descent by rapping from anchors with a single 70 meter rope.
