Variety of interesting moves, passing through three different "zones" each with very different rock structure.

Up into the middle of the two roofs (5.10a), then step right.
. Variation (fun 5.8): Start up the right side of the big dihedral at the left end of the big roof, then hand-traverse Right into the opening of the middle of the two roofs.

Up the sharp-angled corner (shared with the "Full Sickle" route). At the top of that corner, up the right edge of the high prow (5.10a), perhaps more along its left side.
. Variation: From the top of the aharp-angled corner, easier to aim much farther left away from the right edge of the high prow, then up - (but this could result in a harmful side-swing if climber falls).

warning: Loose rock is still a concern here. Belayer or other members of party should not stand anywhere near underneath the climber.


A bit right from below the notch in the midst of two 2-foot deep roofs about 10 feet off the ground, below an arching Right-facing sharp-angled corner.
