The crux of this route may only require an "S" rating if a helmet is worn, although the easy slab finish is still very serious fall potential.Climb the blatant crack on the north face to its end. Move up and right on steep rock past some good crystals (crux) to a slab finish.

If you want to get real excited climb the Kevin Bein Variation. Go to the top of the crack and instead of going right you up and left. Brings some small RP's for pro. This is in the 11 range

This proud line has been effectively castrated by the fellow that bolted the line that starts to the right. Two bolts have been added to the upper slab where the newer route intersects the historic. Enjoy.
