Rules for Stems: FA, at the first crux. Photo by...
A varied route with good climbing throughout. Start with a 12-foot handcrack to the top of a small column, then step right and lieback up a pillar. The first crux involves bearhugging a flange to a series of powerful sidepull and edge cranks with smears for feet. This leads to a prominent stembox (5.10) capped by a roof. The roof is the second crux, which--depending on how you're set up for it--might seem harder or easier than the first crux. The route ends with face climbing up an arete/ramp feature, finishing with an exposed stemming move.
Left side of main wall, starts off the ledge. See beta photo.
12 bolts to chains.
