Start either directly up the wall to the ledge below the overhang on prominent buttress at the north-east end of the cliff (little or no pro), or a little to right up a short right-facing corner below Quicksilver (shared start). From the ledge, climb up and left on top of the large block. Continue straight up the crack above the block. Excellent protection (via corner), the crux (short distance above the block) is a bit tricky for "only" a 16. Descend by either continuing to the summit and walking down, or traverse right to the chains at the top of Quicksilver.

Enjoyable route offering good protection, solid rock and nice exposure. Wanders a bit, so be prepared to lengthen some pieces.
