Turn the roof via the very short, wide crack (10a). Then lieback the huge rib to reach the two bolt anchor.
Top Roping: a top rope can easily be set up from above.
From the top of the crag, walk down the left side (climber's left) to access the big ledge halfway up the face. At the end of the ledge, the top of Fern Dust is marked by two black bolts with rings.

The route can be easily identified from the meadow as the pronounced rib, terminating at the ledge.
Upon reaching the meadow, follow the trail into the trees. The trail will rise and head left, following the cliff band. Before you reach the 3rd class gully, a faint trail heads downhill. Follow this climber's trail to the base.
A large cam can protect the steep start very well.
From a great stance above the roof, a good medium sized cam can be placed behind the rib.

The base was harder to reach when 'Fern Dust' was done, and I rapped the dirty groove adjacent to get to the start. Ergo, the ascent didn't earn ground-up stripes, but the fa went down first try without further notable tactics.
