Start at the base of the chimney and climb the face to a thin, reachy crux. Continue past a flake system and a platform to the overhanging, steep jug haul.
If climbed ONLY using the face (ie no stemming back in the chimney and no holds on the arete), the route is an 5.11+ (5.12a in the new guidebook).
The crux is between the second and third bolts and is much more involved for climbers under 6ft. An attentive belay or a helmet here is a MUST -- a loose catch can send your climber's head into the wall behind them.
Rap or lower from the anchor. Second to clean.

Technical climbing and a thin crux down low, steep hauling on giant flakes, hidden jugs, and chicken heads on top with one more crux before the anchors. If you stem or use the holds found on the arete, it climbs at about 11a/b.
