Fun little solo. The corner on the first pitch really is the only "real" technical climbing on the route. Pitch 2 is a fun easy low angle romp up a varnished face with big pockets. Pitch 3 is a bushwhack scramble. Pitch 4, corner system with big holds to the top of the formation. Continue scrambling on the right side until you see cairns and can down climb a gully on the right. The descent took longer than the climb.
