To the left of the huge chimney is a right facing squeeze chimney/dihedral. Climb this and belay just below the top. Follow the line of bolts above for several pitches aiming for the large roof in the middle of the face. Pass this on the right(crux) and continue up the difficult slab above. BE SURE AND COIL YOUR ROPE AT THIS BELAY OR THEY WILL GET HUNG UP ON A DOWNWARD FACING FLAKE!!! Continue up(hard and sometimes scary) to the easing off slabs and cruise to the top. Once again be prepared for afternoon t-storms.

I first saw a picture of this rock in an old Rock and Ice--I had to climb it. The rock is mystical, and this route is amazing. The old bolts and runouts make for some excitement, as well.
