Description 

This route is on the left of the face. It is identified by a flake at the base of the climb (about 20 feet up, above an easy slab).

Head up to the flake and climb its righthand crack to the top of the flake. Steep tricky face moves lead to easy runout cruising. Moving from the final bolt is the crux and will make you stop and think.

A good introduction to the face.


Protection 

Medium cams for the flake and belay, 3 bolts (3/8")

This route is badly sandbagged at eight. I give it 10a/b. If someone doubts this, go climb it; it's a fine route. It's possible, of course, that holds have broken off over the years.
