L to R R to L Alpha
A great climb that deserves more attention. This is one of the better lines at the cliff, and one of the longest if you consider any one of the 3 climbs you have to do just to get to the base of it as part of the route.
From the approach trail, go left of the first rock you intercept, a huge free-standing spire. Just left of this you will see a mixed (some bolts) route on the vertical flat face of a rounded arete. This face is the route "Till The Cows Come Home." Just left of that route there is a crack in a huge, left-facing corner with a small roof above mid-height and a wide crack above that. This is the route "Grunt." Up and left of Grunt, perhaps 70' off of the ground is a second corner that can be reached via Grunt (most consistent option at 5.8 trad), Tour De Hooks (10d) or Pleasant Surprise (11a).
A standard rack including TCUs and tricams, but beware of fragile rock and some flaring spots.
