Finding myself on the 11d by accident.

Description 

This is a fun way to get on top of a very enticing rock. The climb starts same as South Side Classic, 5.8. Clip one ring bolt and rusty old piton (untrustworthy, but the climbing is easy 5.8/9) to gain the massive ledge. Then follow the rightmost set of bolts up right through the business of the route. Two 11d crux moves come during the next two bolts, then it's a short, easy runout to the top. Sling a chickenhead and equalize with single bolt to belay partner up. Rap off anchors to your right side.

Location 

Do the same start as South Side Classic, 5.8 (see said route for a great beta photo).

Protection 

1 ring bolt, 1 piton to start, then clip three bolts to the top. Single bolt on top, proximal to easily slung chickenheads.
