This is a left-facing off-width crack that provides amazing endurance driven climbing.
Pitch 1: 55 meters of 5.8 climbing.
Pitch 2: 40 meters of 5.10 off-width. This is, for good reason, the crux of the route. Pull through the roof with a nice fist jam and make your way up the crack.
Pitch 3: 30 meters of 5.7 chimney climbing.
Pitch 4: 20 meters of 5.6 climbing and a scramble to the top.
Each anchor is bolted with beautiful American Death Triangles.
There are bolted anchors everywhere, pick one! I always bring an extra rope to make the raps quicker. However, you can make it to the bottom, after a few more raps, with a single 60 meter.
200 meters North of the "Grand Slab" you will see the natural line. It is a left facing off-width crack.
You could manage this climb with a single set of cams, but I recommend bringing an extra #3. There are bolted anchors everywhere.
