Climb up a steep ramp with increasing difficulty until reaching the crux around the third bolt. Although the difficulty decreases from here, there are a few spicy moves after the fourth bolt to gain the anchors.
Located on the left side of the Main Cliff. The climb begins just to the left of Quarryman and climbs the ramp to the top.
A few pieces .5 to 1 inch protect the lower section before reaching the first bolt. Four bolts will see you to the anchor 5 ft. left of Quarryman.

For me, the key was stemming through the crux section. It seems improbable at first, but just go with it.

Great route. Small nuts, TCUs, and a few handsize pieces supplement the bolts. Bit of an exciting ending once past the crux (assuming you don't traverse into Quarryman).

Awesome route. A point of clarification ... there is a separate anchor for this climb located 5 ft to the left of the Quarryman anchor.
