Description 

This route starts on the right edge of the monolith beta photo for the area, and leads off the frame to the right, topping out at the same place as Ski Resort.

The crux is a few moves on the 3rd pitch to negotiate a dihedral/chimney.

The "start" of the route is somewhat vauge, kind of a choose your own adventure. On the north east side of the monolith, look for a nice starting point anywhere on the class 3 slabs underneath the eroded cave-ish wall. Make your way up and to the climbers left until you can see a notch/chimney leading to the eastern false summit. Shoot from there.

This route was actually very fun, all easy slab through the trees, very wandering for the first 2 pitches. The 3rd pitch is the most fun and get you on the summit.

The top-out is small so keep things organized. The route-finding to the rappel point may actually be considered another pitch as you will want to protect it.

Protection 

Camalots .3-2 did the trick, one full set of cams plus doubles in the .4-1 range would be a safe bet.
