This route follows a slightly right leaning crack and face. First pitch is best.

The route goes to the top of the rock, but people usually only do the first pitch, then rappel.

Great route for the area, 5.10 moves on both pitches...pros decent and is a must do for the thin crack connoisseur.

Fine route. Offset cams are useful for this climb, bring them if you've got them.
