From the second belay of Jenson's Jaunt, climb up and right to a steep left-facing corner with a couple of fixed pins that leads up to the massive overhang. A bolt up and left protects the crux: a huge dynamic move is required.
The old 1/4 inch bolt that protected the crux was replaced in 2008 with a nice 1/2 inch bolt by Erik Roed.

Does anyone ever climb this thing? Would be interesting to see how it fares up to modern sport climbers, who are very experienced at this kind of movement.

John, I've never seen anyone on this. I've seen one party go through Pearly Gate, otherwise all traffic goes through Traitor Horn.

I've sat just under it while hanging in our belay waiting for a slow party in front of us on the Traitor Horn. It looks epic and exposed. I though about going for it after hanging and looking at it for so long. But the party finally got moving and my partner and I didn't know the grade.
Beta? Is that one huge dyno to the rim?
