A popular route which some rate as a sport route at 6a+. Climb the line of weakness to a bolt, then make a hard traverse right to gain the crack and a small wire. Carry on up the crack/ramp-line past a bolt on the right. Then, at the bolt above the ramp on the left, move up and left onto a headwall, and make for the large ledge below the lower-off.

UKC Logbook Description
A popular route, well-protected. Ascend the LH crackline to the first bolt, then make the crux move to gain the RH crackline and further protection. With a new, third bolt near the top, the finish is best tackled direct.
