This route is the left of the three beautiful 5.10 cracks at the end of the trail. Down past Isaiah. Climb up easy slab to the base of the finger crack i.e. the business. Pull through the crux on good pro to easy climbing under the roof. Traverse the roof right to the hand crack and pull the 5.9? roof and jam the crack to the top.
This was my first 5.10 red point, and is a good first 5.10 thats safe!
Hike west along the base of the climbs passing Isaiah, to an almost impassable area around a corner and look up at the three beautiful cracks!
Smaller Cams for short crux and some hand sized for the top.

do the awesome left finish if you still have the guns. out the chimney/roof and past thin steep cracks 5.11! protects sufficiently well.

I thought the left roof was supposed to be 10a.. Aw what do I know I'm too much of a pussy to go that way! I traversed off right. ppbbpbpt.

Left roof is not nearly as bad as it looks.
Once you get up there some big feet show up.

The left roof is more like 5.10. protects well with some hand size pieces. Worth doing.

What sizes protect the bottom section of the crack? I am trying to decide if this would be a good first 5.10 lead at the overlook, but if its mostly .75 C4 then I'm not sure. And then 2s and 3s at the top?

I used triples in .5 & .75 and doubles in .4 and #1 and a single #3. I sewed it up pretty well with that rack. That covered me for the climb and the belay.
