This fun route starts in a crack just a few feet right of the Chimney. Take this up to a right slanting crack and traverse over to gain a jug and stand up. From here, follow the arching corner of the rock, liebacking to the right. The crux comes here, afterwhich a super bomber-big jug comes up, where one can do an ultra-photogenic one-handed hang. Easy mantel of the top. Highly recommended.
TR or a couple of bolts near the top for a lead. The bolt down low is for a right moving varaition at 5.11b.
I bailed off this climb thinking that I was a total puss, because it felt waaay harder than 5.9. I must have accidentally stumbled across the 11b variation.

When Sport Climbing the crux make sure that your belayer keeps the slack a little tighter than usual. There is not much room to take a lead fall since you are only 3-6 feet over the rocks on the ledge. Just be aware of this and you will be fine. Enjoy!
I see that someone added a couple of bolts to this one, its a nice addition if you ask me. This is a solid route, it is horrible that the area gets spray paint...

The main slab/flake at the beginning was vibrating a bit like a drum last time I climbed it. I bailed right before the lieback move at the platform because I felt a little weird about climbing it after that.
