An enjoyable moderate route up Questa Dome's Southeast Face. Start 200 yards up and right of major right facing dihedral at a right facing corner with large standing snag on top.

Pitch 1:
Climb corner until it turns left and then angle up and right to small tree. Continue up past 2 bolts to large ledge.

Pitch 2:
Pass tree and climb up zig zag crack and then up the left leaning left facing corner to small ledge.

Pitch 3:
Climb small right facing corner to base of roof. Traverse left below roof and exit up and left onto slab with 2 bolt belay.

Pitch 4:
Follow up slab to the left of large roof and belay at gulley for the final pitch.

Great route with comfortable belays and interesting climbing on every pitch! All of the cruxes are well protected and the only runout climbing is on the easy final pitch.
