Start out from behind the small pinnacle working up the crack. Move thru the roof and eventually find your own belay station. Scramble off the north slabs to descend. A standard rack with some extra large gear will do. The pitch is around 210' long.

The guidebook calls this 5.9+, as would I. Awesome climb!
