Start on the south side. Climb steep face with no pro for 25'. If you fall there's a cat claw bush waiting to cushion you. Gain crack system. Climb to bolted belay on sloping ledge. Climb loose arete past three bolts to horn and piton. Step down and right into gully. Rap from two bolts off the south side (165').This is a great climb to do after the Hand!

I finally went out to do this line and discovered that both belays and the three bolts on P2 have been replaced. It's still plenty run out but maybe went from an X to an R. You can do two raps with a 70 meter down the route and get down now.
Can't say I'd recommend this one. It gets 2 stars for the summit views only. The 1st pitch is actually not too bad with some fun bouldery moves. The 2nd pitch I found to be pretty terrifying - especially since I traversed too high. Some baaaad rock with baaaad pro.
