Work up the crack using small gear initially. This is a little dirty but has cleaned up a bit with some traffic. Eventually you reach a bush and are forced out onto the face to the left into great cracks. A wide section may be the crux but protects well with a number 4 cam. Continue on up the broken jumbled wide stuff to a set of chains out on the face just below the top lip.


At the far right of this wall, this is the obvious corner system.


Standard trad rack, singles of nuts and cams up to number 4.
A double rack of cams would be better. Several extendable slings are needed to straighten the rope out as well.
