Description 

This face climb is located on the left side of the dowlhilll facing face of the rightmost feature of the snowshed wall, just left of the large offwidth crack known as Hair Shirt (5.8), and just right of the spaciously bolted On the Edge (5.11c, three bolts, all way up top.) climbing actually ends above Hair Shirt if you use the normal exit to the climb.

Climb up a small roof to the slab lightly cracked face that's often strenuous, and has some commiting moves at times. Finish off on Hair Shirt for the final bulge. Another finish variation is to traverse left instead of going into Hair shirt for the last bolt of On the Edge, and this makes the grade probably 5.11b or so.


Protection 

small gear to 1" for most of the route, and a few placements of 1"-2". Bolts up top. It should be noted that most people top rope this climb.

A bit squeezed and contrived. Maybe better as a TR...
