Start up the blocky beginning and get situated in the right-facing dihedral. Cruise up staying left of the headwall and traversing right to gain the two bolt anchor.
This is on the north-facing section of the rock, near the bridge. It is to the left of Destroyer.
Standard rack, small cams are best.

I did a couple laps of this with a friend on a freakishly warm day in the middle of December. We setup a top-rope using the bolts. After the dihedral, there is a traverse right on the "bridge" which feels a little exposed even on a top-rope. After that, we finished the route up the nose to the bolts. Just before the end, you can traverse a little left to some nice granite for a finish that requires some reachy moves to slopers - it's little variations like this which have me giving the route a 5.8-. On the second lap, I tried to climb straight up from the top of the dihedral - this redder rock is pretty crumbly and dirty and I slipped off a few moves in - I don't recommend this variation. Also, beware of swinging around on the top-rope. In hind-sight, I might have used a directional.
