Belaying from the anchors on Presidente
Begin at Debutante and follow up to second belay stance.
Pitch 1: Just right of the large right-facing dihedral start by oak trees. Climb thin corner (5.4) to a narrow shelf then traverse left 10' Climb up past a flake and move up a bottoming crack to a belay ledge.
Pitch 2: Climb up right across a slab to the base of a left-facing corner and below a lichen-covered pillar. Climb up the cracks in the corner (5.10a) past a bolt to the summit belay.
Start at Debutante, then at second belay climb right to bolt then straight up. Scramble off back side to Descent Gully.
Wide selection of gear, Small to Large cams to #4 C4. TCU's and stoppers as well. One Fixed/glued Piton for belay anchor at ledge.

Felt less than 5.10a. More like a 5.9. Still a fun route!

Guidebook from the 80's has this as a variation to missing link and rates it at 5.9. A rap chain has been added at the top; 35 meters or 115 feet to the ground.
