Up the lefthand crack and out the roof. Center roof crack finish is 5.11a.
Route #1 in Chen/Wehner, as shown in the East Side beta photo
This climb is also listed as Beverly #1 (5.9+/10a) and Jackson #7 (5.9+/10a). Beverly's topo is correct. Jackson's topo is wrong in that it avoids the left roof crack entirely, but it has the correct start.
TR, or lead it with a standard rack up to a #4 camalot.

The Beverly "Jemez Rock" guidebook calls this "The Big Enchilada", with the other crack a "harder 11 variation". Don't fool yourself... the 11 is definitely The Big Enchilada, this is the "easier 9+ variation."
