This is the leftmost route on the Main Face. Start up the diorite band on bolts. After clipping the 4th bolt, step out left to mount a horizontal crack through a roof (3" cam recommended). Continue up and RIGHTWARD through obvious weaknesses. A second crux climbs by a bolt through another roof before finishing up a finger crack to the 2-bolt anchor (shares anchor with Chips and Salsa).
Some bolts with lots of gear placements as well. Slightly meandering but quite a journey. Long pitch.... 70 meter rope required to lower off.
