The outermost point of the island. Look for loose conglomerate which changes to a facey/blocky section, which goes to an 8" crack and small roof. Climb straight up through all of these and up the face of the roof. Crux is the transition to the blocky arete. You can also opt to traverse left 10' under this large block, then handcrack your way up to the right. This variation is arguably harder, but can be protected with medium cams and some nuts.

The route description from Dr. Topo was kind of hard to follow. Ended up working right under the "inverted staircase" about 15 feet until I pulled the roof and headed up the face. Seemed more around 10a variation to me. There are plenty of places for pro if you have the guts to lead it.
