Just to the right of Potholes Crack on the Back Wall. Staying just right of the crack on the face all the way up, do not confuse this with Dark lady,Dark lady is another 8 feet to the right of this climb. You start out on crimps and two backsteps five feet right of the crack, then climb up and left. . Gotta hook the tip of your thumb to step onto some crimps, then you move into the crux in which all of your weight is on just your left toe and your right hand with your right foot flagging so you're sideways (looks cool). After the crux you're in a rest position doing the splits, then it's an under cling and two crimps to get over the bulge. It takes a very creative sequence.

Descent Options:

Hike off the back side.
