The climb the face right of a short, small arrete. After that, either head straight up to the anchor or climb the easier-than-it-looks squeeze chimney on the left (the bolt below the anchor can be clipped from the chimney).

3 out of 5 stars Fun

Classic climbing to a somewhat awkward and confusing finish. Great rests.

4 out of 5 stars Evil Routefinding

This is a superb route except for the end where you can't decide whether to go right or left. Go left. Use the wide crack and finish it up.

3 out of 5 stars Unclear finish

straight seems too hard for 10c. The offwidth makes it seem more like 10b.
