This is a GREAT pitch of climbing! If you're in the area to do Finger Lickin', then you should totally do this one as well.

Above the top of the crack on P2, where the climb 'forces' you to the right, you CAN keep going directly up to the belay. The moves are steep and a little more insecure. Gear is not exactly great, but it is there, and the climbing is not super-human. Maybe 10d or 11-? Maybe PG-13?
Anyway, a mere mortal can do it, and I'm a bit surprised it has not been done/documented. It might deserve a bolt.
I'd call it 'Trustafarian' as in 'Trust that something will appear for you up there,' in terms of holds and gear.

|First ascent: Mark Rolofson & Mark Van Horn on June 6, 1981. The route listed in this route description is the easier variation that was done years later. What attracted me to the climb was the thin, right-angling crack start which is solid .10d (originally rated .11a). This start is left of the 5.9 start beginning off a detached flake. A #4 & two #5 RPs ( 5-6 micro stoppers) & small to small medium stoppers are useful.|
