Description 

Steeper than your typical Yosemite 5.11 face climb. Some cool moves and fairly clean compared to the adjacent routes. See the approach for info for Gash.

Start by climbing a tree to clip a rusty 1/4" bolt. Then climb straight up the steep face past several bolts which are all at least 3/8" and in better shape. Most of the climbing is surprisingly moderate and there are a lot of really juggy holds. The crux is at mid-height and involves a big reach out left. A large wingspan will maybe make the climb feel easy for the grade. At the last bolt I traversed right to finish up the final crack on Gash. It also looked like it's maybe possible to finish more directly and to the left of the bolt.

This is a sport climb but the bolts are spaced 10 ft apart in some places. It can also be toproped after leading Gash.

Protection 

Bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.
