p. 1 (5.10a, 180 feet) Step off a boulder onto a slick face and up past three bolts, then break out left along a flake. Move up to the headwall, following the left line of bolts through brilliant alligator skin. A small roof caps this sustained pitch, ends at a two bolt anchor. p. 2 (5.8, 80 feet) Move up to a bolt, then break out right on easy terrain to a blunt arete on the edge of a chimney system. Follow bolts up to a bolted belay in an alcove. p. 3 (5.10a, 150 feet) Struggle up the chimney and break out right along a pretty seam in a right trending right facing corner to a good bolted belay stance. Some gear is useful on this pitch. p. 4 (5.8, 60 feet) Follow a line of bolts up and slightly right from the belay to another big belay ledge below the final headwall. p. 5 (5.8, 80 feet) Move the belay right to another good bolted stance. Above you is the finish to Days of Future Passed. Go right, around the headwall and ascend a hidden line of bolts to the summit and belay in the beautiful pothole. Watch for suspect rock on this pitch.
Locate the rap line on the back of the formation, there's bolts near a sturdy tree. Use double ropes.

My last route of 2008, a good "end." Expect fantastic climbing, lots of bolts, and a gorgeous setting. No one around today, we started after noon to stay in the sun. First pitch is the money, it's sustained and throws a lot of different moves at you. NOTE: go left when you hit the headwall and another bolted line breaks away right.
