Four full length pitches of slab climbing. Doesn't look like there is any pro on the first 30', but pockets appear for cams or tricams if you need it, and the climbing is easy. On pitch two, head up and right to the light colored, low angle ramp and two bolts. Crux is here, a well protected 5.9 move. Then traverse left to a shallow, low angle dihedral. Guidebook is wrong on pitch three - head straight up to the first bolt. The bolts are hard to see - have faith, they are out there. Pitch four is the mental crux. Climb up 35 feet off the belay, crank a 5.9 move, then clip the first bolt. It's all there, and you have a good stance to contemplate the move. Relax. Don't fall. After this it's not bad - pockets for tricams and threads for slings, and another bolt not shown on the topo (old rusty 1/4" - not retro). Rap the route or climb a short, easy pitch to the top. Great route.
