A hard to find route that starts on dirty right-facing flakes. Climb flakes up and left to a good ledge (200', 5.8). The second pitch climbs a thin seam with some old fixed pins. Back them up with small cams and launch up the easy but dangerously runout slab with dikes to a gear belay in an alcove. Look for old slings. From here climb a continuous crack system for multiple pitches through the huge roofs. Bolt belays have been added. I'm trying to be more vague because I don't remember the specifics. The top out pitch is long and it is hard to communicate with the belayer. A very cool climb, of course its a Harding route. Maybe one of the better 11s at the leap. Wild exposure, great crack climbing.
Standard rack to 4", runners.
