Description:

Climb the twin cracks on the left of the north west face. Taverse right and up the flakes after the cracks run out. The climbing is a bit harder, but the pro is better if you jam/stem up the left most crack until it runs out. The top is very loose, but the moves past the flakes can be protected (only?) with a lowe ball. Originally graded a 15 (maybe further right?)....

I finally nailed it!!
Without a doubt, lowe balls are the only way to %100 safely protect the flake section (the very top is too loose to effectively protect at all).
