Use one of the main starts (the left side start creates a nice testy start) move to the middle of the large ledge. Climb the small crack that splits the face above the ledge to a blank section, continue up to a deeper larger crack farther up, and continue on up to the top.

the finger crack is worth it... just don't stop moving. Put a finger in and focus on your feet. Crux is probably getting off the ground.

This line should be called Shallow Crack because it's a crack really in name only.

If you're breaking into the grade, this route is NOT for you because it's severely run out and the few pro placements near the crack are for psychological purposes.

Found out that a bolt was chopped in the recent bolt wars.

Build an anchor at the top. Scramble over and down to the right to the newly installed metolius rap hangars (as of 12/21/13).
