Located by walking SE from the camping area past where the ridge narrows and is "T"-shaped. Walk down the righthand corner of the "T" down a steep gully. This route is the first obvious crack. The bottom is a large offset / shallow dihedral that overhangs slightly then is a large flake that ends at a ledge, and tops out past a bulge and slab. The crux is moving into the flake and may be height dependent. Dangerous runout at the top unless you can sling or otherwise utilize a rather hidden pocket from a less-than-ideal stance on the bulge. 50 ft. 5.11- R (4 out of 5 stars)

My BOLDEST trad FA. I rehearsed gear placement with TR, later hang-dogged, later redpointed.
