Route just to the right of Route#3. A fun wandering route that follows varied natural features. Starts up a right-leaning crack then traverses left across the face to the top. Crux is sidestepping left across a series of xenoliths (pebbles) to get to the left-hand crack.
Route in between route #3 and #4.
Draws. A couple of longer runners will reduce rope drag on the traverse. Chain anchors. Rap, lower or walk off.

Pretty cool... there are 2 old pitons hammered in on this route about 3/4 way up.

Actually the "old" pitons were new pitons - which we have now been replaced with a single bolt in a better position.

I like this climb and would happily repeat it.
