Start in a shallow dihedral past a few ledges until the crack starts to pinch down. Do some awkward moves past the constriction and onto easy terrain to the anchor.
This route is easily identified by the pinyon pine tree on the wall that is 30 yards right of Optical Illusions.

The poor pine tree has been spared. Anchors have been replaced courtesy of the ASCA.

This route has some easy crack climbing at the top and bottom, with about 3 feet of horrendous, greasy, shallow, flared, awkward climbing in the middle. Ugh.
It's not actually as bad as all that, but I found it very awkward and won't hurry back to do it again. Top-roping the face to the left is fun though; good slabby face and seam climbing. Better than this route, I thought!
