Start out by making a few bouldery moves through a nearly horizontal overhang to reach a huge jug. (A spotter is helpful for the first few moves). From the giant jug, climb up using pockets to reach a slanting shallow ledge. Pull past this ledge by finding a few good pockets to gain a stance. From here, head straight up to an overhanging triagular flake. Gain the underclings at the base of the flake and fire to a jug at the top lip of the flake (crux). From here, the climbing tends to wonder right and then back left on easier ground, but with still techinical moves. Continue to the top.
From the approach trail, pass the short Little Teapot toward a cave. This route is the last route on the wall before dropping down to the right to reach Two Women Alone, 5.11a.
