A great route from bottom to top -- really, I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could. It takes the obvious line up the large hole on the North Face. Climb up the left side of the mouth up to the overhang and make the crux, big moves up to gain the face. The holds in this are a bit fragile, and the crux moves have changed a couple times as they've broken -- be sure to belay from a safe spot as there may be more that can come down. Regardless, once on the face above the roof, climb the fun corner through interesting holds to the upper bulge, where another "warm-down" crux takes you to final ledge below the anchors.
Pretty strenuous cruxes with with solid, fun climbing in between ... on a hot day, you just might chuck.
This ascends the impossible-to-miss overhang in the large pod on the North Face, just left of Poser's Lonely Reunion.
Bolts to a 2 bolt fixed chain anchor.
