Start just right of the 2-bolt anchor on the Bird's Nest ledge. Climb past 5 bolts out the left side of the large roof (crux). Step right into the long, left-facing dihedral at 5.8+. 1 more bolt connects to the crack up and right to find the 2-bolt anchor. You can avoid the 11c roof by starting up Raspberry Jam and working rightward into the Shaft of Light dihedral. This makes for a long 5.9 pitch with only 2 bolts.


Standard rack and a 70m rope! 6 bolts in 110' so plan on placing lots of gear! 14 quickdraws recommended. 2-bolt chained anchor for the descent
