Description 

This climb starts on the far left hand side of the cliff, just to the right of the wide "descent' gully. Make opening moves to gain the vertical quartz wall, continue up this face (gear) and eventually step right and up to a small stance. Climb up and left to the outside corner, using one hand on the outside corner move up and right to a very shallow, 2" flake [no pro here!], continue up this flake(crux)to the top.

Location 

The far left side of the Upper Ledge, just to the right of the wide descent gully.

Protection 

Done as a Top Rope, placement of one bolt would make it a legit lead climb.
