Description:

A mega-classic route. Begin on the SE corner inside a bunch of bushes and trees. Ascend up and slightly left up a prominent crack system. When this ends head up (do not continue up left toward the wide crack system) and slightly right to the start of the bolted face (bolts hard to see until you go up a bit). Continue up several bolts to a bolted anchor. The second pitch is the knock out pitch. Head right from the belay and then straight up the fantastic arete. At the last bolt pull right around the arete to a huge chicken head, sling it, and continue right to a crack system. Then head up to the belay. Rap off the fixed anchors above the route Parasite.

Fell right before the anchor due to poor route finding (didn't see the anchor bolts to my right -- doh!). Fantastic climbing on undulating, juggy features with adequate, solid bolts every 20 feet or so. Great route.
