Start up the 5.7R face for about 35ft.(unprotected)then climb a 5.9 flake system to a friction slab 5.10+.


Just right of the Wong 1st pitch.
Either join the Long climb
or make the 2 rope rappel.


possible small pro in the flake section
6 bolts 1 piton
2 bolt belay/rappel anchor 150ft (needs 2 rope for rappel)

A defnite heads up R to the first bolt. Then use magic or levitation to float the uber slab crux. The finishing roof is kinda awkward but a nice relief for your burning feet.
