1st pitch: Start immediately to the right of Tobin's Dihedral and stay close to it's edge. Come ready to place oppositional nuts in horizontals, tie off chickheads and clip a few bolts.
2nd pitch: Continue up the corner/crack of Tobin's. You can break out right on the face and clip bolts or continue until corner runs out.
3rd pitch: Continue up the face clipping bolts. Climbing gets easier the higher you get.
Assortment of small to large stoppers with matching cams, tie off slings for chickenheads and draws

A 5.9 route for solid 5.10 climbers. Quite runout. Some very marginal knob tie-offs between fewer bolts on P1. Very pleasant face climbing with some route finding amongst a sea of features.
