Climb up face/slab to the first bolt, 15' up, and continue up steepening face past 4 more bolts aiming for a 15' exit crack. Clip last bolt and head for the base of the crack, crux. Gain the crack to not much relief, pull the bulge and finish up the cruiser corner to the trees or the bolted belay on Crescent direct finish.


Third line over from crescent, next to the purely bolted line, unknown left.


Standard rack and draws.

John, any chance you can sort this? It sounds like it is on the left side, but "unknown right" is throwing me off.

When the approach trail meets the cliff band, there is a section immediately in front of you (maybe slightly to climbers left) that contains three routes. The left-most one is Crescent. The center low angle face is Crescent Direct. And Unknown Right is on the right side of this face.

... I think.
