Long wandering, Gunk-like pitch. Starting up the twin cracks, make some delicate moves (above the 2nd piece of pro) to stance. Continue up a seam until you are below the roof, then traverse right then up again. Belay stance has a wonderful view of the bridge and gorge.
Descend from the ring bolts with a single 60m rope. Otherwise, use a a 50m rope and head straight down to the anchors for Thieves in a temple.
Starts just to the right of Two-Tone Arete. Start at the twin cracks, but use the left one. Route wanders right about halfway up.
Standard rack, focus on TCUs/C3s. Bolt anchors (these are new since the Williams guide). If 5.9 is your limit on lead, this route will feel spicy, especially at the bottom.
