Starts with a couple of big moves to reasonable holds. From the 2nd bolt reach with your left hand to a two finger pocket, then with your right hand to a jug. Trend right to bolts 3, 4, & 5 then left up the arete (don't go too far right!) Fairly sustained 5.11 climbing. Clip the sport anchors from a good horn out left.
Starts up the first two bolts of The Abyss, then moves right to the arete to finish on Deep End.
7 bolts to sport anchors (stick clip the first bolt)

this climb is very fun many large holds and even more small finger slots several different ways to climb it .
watch out for slippery holds , exelent climb and area, full day if you want.

I haven't seen this climb done the same way twice. below the third bolt around the ArÍte is a hidden hold a loop like feature that makes clipping easy.
