Climb the clean cut Left Facing Dihedral.
Start by climbing and easy, protected slab crack, make an exciting 8ft traverse right to the corner. Stem, and Float your way up the corner. One bolt anchor under roof, Back up with a nut for TR'ing
Keep following the trail along the base for another 5 min from "One for the Road" to climbers left.
Two-Grey TCU, Three-Purple TCU, Two-Blu TCU, sigle-.75-4 camolot...That will SOW it up

EDIT: Went out today 5/8/09 and took it over the roof. From the bolt continue unprotected 5.10 stemming to a good jug below the roof, and a good sidepull at the lip of the roof. place a blue alien at the lip, and a orange TCU just over make a hard pull to a finger lock and crank over. 20 more feet of off angle finger crack leads to a 2 bolt anchor. Can TR with single 60m

Did the route as one pitch. Kinda Scary! I definitely didnít do the right start and almost cratered before getting my first piece... The jug at the roof is super hollow sounding... Didn't/couldn't get gear before pulling the roof(I ran out of small pieces). I Only managed to get a BD .75 about 10 feet above the roof. Very glad I didnít fall!
NOTE: A BD #4 or 5 is nice for the short offwidth section
