A great route often overlooked because of a lack of bolts on the first 40 feet of climbing. Climbs the Standard Route crack to a move up and right to reach the first bolt (5.5). Fun well protected climbing leads through smooth rock to a finishing crux mantle to reach the anchors. Used to access the "Bird's Perch" ledge and the climbs that start from there.
Begin at the obvious crack of Standard Route.
5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Bring nuts and cams if you need to protect the easy runout to the first bolt.

The upper section involves some good stemming to a hidden hold and a mantle. Very fun.
If you want to protect the lower section, bring a few cams from .5 to 1, but running it out wouldn't be much worse than getting to the first bolt on the Great Escape.
