just before the crux

Description 

climb up the slab to the vertical section. stick to the left side of the wall on the aret. the crux is before the last ledge beneath the top. use a series of sidepulls with smeared feet so you dont barn-door off the face. reach for the final ledge and mantle. the top is one easy move away from there

note: if you use a top rope, you will have pro set up for the aret as well as the center route

Location 

the farthest left crag. over the slab and up the vertical wall

Protection 

there are some ancient bolts up the aret, but they are drawn out pretty far. one piece of pro is a rusted out piton jammed in a horizintal crack way above the last bolt
if you set up a top-rope, check your anchor. the anchor bolts are very old. its best to build your own anchor using the trees at the top. i clip the bolts as a guide so the rope wont swing as much
