This route starts in right slanting discontinuous cracks on the right side of the wall. Follow obvious cracks up and right past a pillar and a flake which lead to a small triangular ledge. Belay here at the base of the beautiful brown left facing arch. Go up, turn the corner, continue up 30' or so and step out right and finish passing two arches.
