Bolted climb to the right of Mariah. Climb up a steep face/dike to a ledge. Pull up onto the upper block and move slightly right to a good ledge. Go straight up past the bolt to a good hand ledge then step right. This is a tricky but very safe sequence (5.9). Most people miss it and do the more exposed lower traverse right.

This climb gets a lot of hype is because it's long for mission gorge. It's not really a HARD 5.9 but it's a bit heady because of the slick rock and it does take time to find all the good holds. Once you find em it's pretty easy, but seems scary until you do. I was smiling on my way down so I guess it's a pretty fun climb. It's just not my style. (ledgy, traversing, slick) Excuses, I know :)
