This route begins at the middle of the wall, and goes straight up. A difficult (5.9) bulge halfway up can be passed by moving left (5.6). The numerous cracks have tier-like bulges between them for holds. Clean pro is dicey, at best. The cracks criss-cross at +/- 20 degrees from horizontal, and will only accept thin pins. A fanatic could oppose RPs and tiny stoppers for a clean ascent.

I first climbed this in 1976 using aid. I freed it on toprope in 1983.
