Description 

Follows crack system on left side of the formation.

Stem and face climb up blocky start with great finger sized pro to small ledge. Continue up a fantastic hand section for the next 50-60' (THE GOODS!). Chimney/squeeze past the last block to the top of the ledge. Set gear anchor in crack above.

Traverse right on huge ledge to bolted chain anchor on wall (ignoring button heads on block below) to rap off.
Two rope rap, 70 will work with some easy down climbing.

Protection 

Standard rack, extra thin hand/hand sizes. Maybe a 5 for the top if the squeeze is worrisome.
