This is an excellent plumb line route with pitch after pitch of high quality challenging face climbing. See the topo for all the info needed to climb it and enjoy. Note that it is nearly always dry so it is a good route to do in a wet winter when most of the other routes are wet. All the 5.12 moves on p1 can easily be French-freed.
Some of the pitches including p1 were pinkpointed on the FFA.
50 feet right of the dead tree of forbidden fruit
I tried to bolt it to be consistently well protected without being over bolted but there are of course a few exciting parts and some spots you could get hurt on if you fall at the wrong time on easy terrain. Bring singles to #2, tricams, draws.
