Description 

Stand start bottom right of the West face, left hand on the face, right hand on the arete. Follow the arete/rail up through some positive holds moving up and left. Climb diagnol left until you hit the obvious ledge about 13ft up and go straight up through cruiser terrain to the top from the ledge.

Its the face and arete just right of the obvious front block that is seen in the photos for the "rock one" area.

there is an alternative start; left hand crimp and right hand on a obvious right facing side pull on the face. from this start move up and left to a sloper (the crux to me is latching the sloper) and then up to the original line. the original line and this alternative start merge 2-3 moves up at amazing 2 pad pocketesque holds. the alternative start is in the V2/3 range.

Its all about maximization here. there is an alternative, really fun finish that from the middle section (with the pocketesque holds) goes straight up through this dark stone and comfortable holds. it is slightly harder, not much though, just different with quality stone. it keeps you over the pad which is nice.
