Rappel in. The guide book describes a start several hundred feet from the base, traversing in right to several holes. These are really tough to see on the way in--we missed them, and started on a 12B approach pitch. 5.12 aidable, obligatory 11 with runouts. this route has been retrobolted since the Edlinger days but is still a challenge. Expect long runouts on easier ground, some sharp rock, and a huge tree growing out of the last belay hole. One can take a large fall from above the third or fourth bolt into the tree--about 11b way out--for this reason, I gave the route an R rating. Finally, the very last pitch has obligatory 11+/12A climbing. Be prepared, or bring hooks. Ones feet are perhaps 8 ft above the bolt at the crux
