Fun, moderate romp.
Not described in full in the guidebook this route follows an obvious crack system up the N. Face then splits into a choose your own adventure sort of thing.
P1 Follow cracks into left facing corner. Belay bolts can be found on top of the corner on the right, finish of Grace Slick 10b.
P2 Go straight up into right facing corner to obvious ledge.
P3 Continue up right facing corner with two pins in it. You can go left for jugs and better pro but a R slab crux comes getting back into the crack just after passing the small roof. #4 C4 helpful here. At a pointy junction go right and straight up over the roofs to a nice bolted belay.
P4 Trend right until you must turn a blind corner and step down into the right facing dihedral of Northeast Face West. Belay under roof or head up to a belay just over the roof.
P5 Easy climbing to the top.
Next crack system right of the large roof, right of El Grandote.
Pro to 3", #4 C4 helpful.

Did the route in May 2014. Sustained route. 5.6-5.7. The guidebook wasn't helpful so we went off track. Fun route!
