Vogel gives the route 2 stars and gives a decent description of how to get there - it's about 200 feet right of Bush Crack. Start by climbing up a grovely crack until you can get to the main face. Clip a few bolts with no hangers until you can reach the upper part of the route that consists of climbing HUGE fun buckets to the top of this sweet formation. I loved the route and the view I got at the top. Climbing the huge buckets was fun too. A nice chill, out of the way route that you will NEVER find anyone on. 5.6 ...send it buddies!
4 bolts with no hangers. Medium size cams for the anchor.

I think the initial crack up to the ledge would have been easier if I'd liebacked it, but wanted to get good gear, so climbed the awkward off-width with arm bars and foot cams. Some work.
Above the ledge this route somehow reminded me of the SW Corner of Headstone Rock. The hanger-less buttonheads make for good pro when you slide a small nut on them.
Fun route, and a good way to start the day.
