Description 

Start by climbing the right leaning finger crack to eventually gain a stance above the 2nd bolt (crux). Continue up to the overhang and traverse a bit right. Follow a flake system straight up and then diagonal up and left toward the shuts. The upper portion is often wet and may be a bit dirty from run off, but this climb is well worth doing. Nice moves, especially in the crack section at the bottom.

Location 

Locate the right leaning finger crack on the face just to the left of the Narcissus Cave.

Protection 

7 bolts, shuts

CONDITION REPORT 
I think the anchors of this route are unsafe to climb on. Beware! Not a comfortable rappel.
