This one has tricky bolt-protected face climbing and a splitter thin-hands corner, and it even stays dry in the rain. There is a second pitch as of 2008, which wasn't freed on the first ascent but is likely 5.11. There is a hard wide section with a swift's nest in it so this pitch might be good to save for the fall or winter.
Huge right leaning, right facing corner/forming arch on the north side of 313, on the first roadside wall encountered after passing Class Act and the large recess in the cliffline.
Quickdraws, a double set of cams to #3 camalot with extra #1 camalots for the first pitch. For the second pitch take the double set plus a few big pieces to #6 camalot and some extra #.5 and #.75 camalots for the roof.
