Second best route on the face. Use a #1 cam between bolts 2 and 3 for some extra pro. I think if you use the giant crack on the left it makes the route 5.9. But if you follow the bottom straight up it's a 5.10a. Bottom two bolts are definitely the crux. After that 5.7/5.8 climbing.

Maybe the right route. An arcing right seam that leads to a runout jug haul to the anchors. Ok, not good or bad. Not scary but just hurt my finger (tendon pull from when I was drunk, silly me) and pumpy. I really have to start climbing more often.
