Start at the base of Black Dihedral and immediately move right onto the face. Head up through a series of confusing moves and the crux, aiming for the obvious upper dihedral. Cruise up this to the final roof which is pulled to the right. Fun with micro-routefinding skills being useful.

Very cool route! I found the holds to be hard to see, and the movement very sequential. 6 hangs on my first attempt? But once I had the beta it came together and was able to RP second go.
