P1: Start 25 feet right of That's Weak. Following the left leaning crack system up to the bolted anchors of That's Weak. 5.7. P2: Continue up to a flared dihedral (crux). There are a couple of somewhat hidden pitons in the crack leading up to the crux. Move through the dihedral traverse right, pull a roof and set you belay in on the small ledge. 5.9. P3: Traverse left under the large roof. Go passed the roof to a large grassy ramp. Continue up the ramp to a bolted belay. Rossiter calls this 5.8. I found it to be closer to 5.5 or 5.6. P4: Continue up the 20 ft. up ramp to the large dihedral. Follow this up to a small gully with a tree in it. 5.8.

Descent Options:

Look for rap rings. There are plenty of bolted anchors to rap off of. It is possible to down climb the steep gully between Black Widow Slab and Vampire Rock but not recommended.
