You gotta warm up, right? Easy climbing up a left-facing corner leads to the first bolt. Make the clip then step out of the corner onto the face to the second bolt, then diagonal left to the last bolt on Trompe and finish on that route. For an easier variation (5.9), continue stemming up the corner past another bolt to the top of a pedestal and surmount a bulge past a final bolt to the chains on Trompe.


Furthest bolted route on the right, next to an ugly dihedral with a wide crack.


3 or 4 quickdraws depending on which way you go. Fixed biners on the chains, but take a few in case they’ve been pilfered.
