Follow obvious right facing crack system that divides the right side from the left of the main wall. .10a offwidth goes to .8 chimney. Belay in alcove with old bolt. Lieback obvious flake to ledge below chimney. Strenuous chimney is followed by hand crack that peters out. Poorly protected but easy face climbing to belay below huge ledge system. Move belay up to ledge. Climb up to roof and go either way. Right is original route and goes up dirty .8 squeeze chimney. Left is prettier but easier. Last pitch up rock and dirt hummocks to top. Rap route is a few yards to the west (left).
