Climb the start up to the belay ledge, for some fun funky moves stay in the crack, for some fun face climbing on trad gear go right. At the belay ledge, climb the bolted route in front of you to finish the classic climb.
East Animas rack with some draws.

This is a cool route. The first pitch is all trad and has some interesting and fun face moves to a single chimney move below the anchors that can be bypassed on the left via 9+/10- face climbing. Small-med cams and stoppers protect this pitch well.
The second pitch is also stellar. It is about 120' with the crux coming directly off the belay. Steep moves protected by bolts take you to a small overhang (which you can protect with a small stopper). After surmounting the overhang, a sea of 5.7 edges take you to the top. Walk left to rappel.

Can do this as one pitch with a 60m, more like 200' not 250' like the description says.

East A. regulars, please help me out here… wasn’t the original line intended to go straight up the dihedral and not out to the left? Thanks!!!

Assuming you are referring to the first pitch. If you don't go left, it bumps the grade up to 10+....
