The "slot" mentioned in the description might also be called a "gully." You climb up the gully about 30 feet to the second (and larger) of two bushes. Directly to the right of the upper bush on the main face is a bolt.
Climb up past the bolt on decent scoops to reach a vertical crack where you can get gear. Continue up and then left along the crack/flake to the summit, or better yet, clip the final bolt on Pacific Ave Dorm to protect exposed moves to the summit.
You'll need cams bigger than a gold Camalot for the anchor (ie: blue, grey & purple).
Down climb the west face of the formation along a low angled crack. Scramble down boulders toward the road to reach the base of the formation.
