Either wedge yourself in the chimney and have some physical fun or pinch the arete to the right. either way, eventually reach a roof with great hand jams and pull it.
The route is just left of the Snakes and Ladders face. The obvious roof w/ a thin hand crack.
Up to a #2 camalot. Lots of small stuff for the lower corner. Descend via a tree w/ slings and rap rings.

I put the route in the database as a .10- because that's how it's listed in the book. Personally, I feel the thing's a scorchin' sandbag! The roof is easy, but the lower dihedral is REALLY physical!!

Probably 10b or 10c. The stemming work is not rudimentary. Beware of sandbags. A few small nuts protect some interesting climbing, so not for the trad noobie. Fun route though, and certainly height dependent.

This entire rock is just full of sandbags.

Definitely a rewarding climb. the portion below the roof requires a few tricky placements with some not so regular moves. I agree with the "body english" statement, but its a cruise past the roof.

"Descend via a tree with rap rings"
-Maybe I missed this tree, but I just built an anchor, brought my second up and descended the chains atop groovy crack.

This was a popular test piece as early as '76. Did it that year with Rick Wyatt - off width master.
