On the southeast side of Reef #2 is a narrow fin of rock called X Marks the Spot. On the east side of the fin is an obvious thin crack that leads into a pod. Climb up the thin crack and through the pod. When this ends, climb up to the top using the arete on the left. This goes past two bolts. Rap using one rope from fixed anchors at the top.
The first part of the route follow a thin crack and then leads into a pod. Bring small nuts for the crack, and a #2 or 3 camalot would work well for the pod. Then two bolts lead to the top.

Oh, forgot to say, there is a reason this climb is named Ankles Away. A while back, someone broke both their ankles after a ground fall. The gear is good, but make sure to place it well to prevent any more accidents.

Small stoppers and a yellow alien protect the lower section of the route. A #2 Camalot slots into the very top of the crack before you move left and up towards the bolt. Great route- be sure to keep yourself balanced towards the top!

This route is worth doing, if for no other reason than to sign the summit register.
