Description 

A flake (5.8) near the bottom is a bit loose, but the rock on the rest of this face climb is excellent. The climbing up the initial flake is poorly protected. The crux move is right by a bolt. Higher up is a very runout 5.9 move, where a fall would be serious. The ledge at the top has a bolted anchor at its left end, allowing a 90 foot rappel back to the ground. This climb is in the sun all day.

Protection 

2 bolts, a fixed pin, and gear to 3" for the belay

Here again if the leader is climbing at this grade the so called unprotected moves above crux should be no problem.Bolts were placed on the lead where there was a stance to drill in good alpine style.

VERY CLASSIC ROUTE. One of the best at Suicide. Can't believe the rating of 2 stars. It has one of the best finishes at the rock.
