This route has 3 distinct finishes:

all three routes start the same and go through the hour-glass crack (crux #1).

You can step right after the crack and pull an easy roof. Then climb the white arete past a bolt. 5.10b FA: PS/PD

The classic route climbs straight through the wide crack/layback above the hourglass crack. Bring a large (#4 camalot) for the base of this crack. 5.10+ FA: Paul Sullivan & Joel Maynard

variation finish is to climb the fingercrack on the left noted in the description. 5.11b FA: Bill Saul
