3 stars for the reputation and novelty, not for it's outstandingness as a climb itself. Speak aloud of doing it and a crowd may follow you to the base of this climb to watch. I scrounged gear to lead on and that is exactly what happened.
Climb up and right a few body-lengths to reach the beginning of the hard climbing, then start firing protection and clings to pass a few odd flakes and get established high in the crack. At eh very end, veer left to a bolted anchor.
This route is the left-trending cracks and flakes system on the right side of the big corner, facing more southwardly.
fingers to fat fingers (.75"-1.5") and a few slings. Be mindful of some loose grains on the flakes due to lack of frequent travel.
