Head up the heavily pocketed face, also utilizing the arete on the left when necessary.
from "pogue ethics", continue left on the trail and look for the obvious heavily pocketed face just right of an arete.

Nice warmup lead, though some of the pockets aren't as positive as they look.

Super pocketed route. It felt easier than 5.8 to me, and while I was up there, I felt like if you spent enough time, you could turn it into 5.5 if you just found the right line of jugs. Very fun warmup, and I also found it to be a good intro to the rock that is in the Red.

This climb has it's name for a reason. Got swarmed by flies will belaying. Those things bite! The climb isn't worth standing around and getting bitten up.
