Start 10 feet left of Two Ears into a left-facing dihedral. Step out onto the face at the hook in the crack. Some runout up and right to more cracks two ledges below the upper face work well for anchoring. The second pitch stays on the face between the dihedrals with many dirty variations.

I climbed just right of the dirty crack on the first pitch. Protection was scarce on some scary slab leading.

Walk off to the left.


Rack, nuts go in everywhere. Long runners are helpful
