Start to the right of the bolts; climb up and left to the first bolt. Climb past three bolts and continue to the top. This route is quite sustained, with tricky thin face moves. It is well protected, and in shade most of the day.


This is near the left end of the face, with three obvious bolts.


three bolts plus a few gear placements in horizontal cracks, and gear for the belay on top

Used to do this line occasionally on the way back to the car. Originally rated 11a, I think. Fun little route.
