BETA PHOTO: 1) Rehabilitation 2) Deception 3) Life Sentence...
This climbs the second slab from the left. It starts on top of a ledge system and works thin cracks and edges. It meanders left around a hard area, and then traverses back right to join up with a thin crack that splits the center of the face. Fun climb.
Slings around flakes up top. Bring your own just in case. Top-rope can be set up by climbing the climbs to the right and then scrambling up to the top of this flake. Be safe. If leading bring micro nuts

Small gear is an understatement. A couple of yellow metolius, a purple DMM, a couple of brass, and a red metolius, for the lower face. The top can take a couple of cams in horizontal cracks, from small to medium would work as the cracks vary in size. Bring runners, and a screamer for luck.

Led this yestersay and I really think its a great short climb. Bring a bunch of tiny to small nuts. Brassies are great. I saw a few spots where the smallest lowe-ball would be bomber, so bring those if you got'em. I placed a #6 (green) metolius down low, and a #7 (light blue) metolius around the corner with a long sling. HIgher up I stuffed a #00 metolius and a #0 metolius. This thing is worth climbing if you are comfortable with small gear and know how to place it. As for the "R" rating, I'm not sure that this is a true runout out climb. Maybe back in '84 when the Ruckmans climbed it pre-t.c.u.'s.
