From the login box about five yards up this is the obvious corner. Can be wet. A 5.8 variation goes up the left face about 2/3 of the way up, and is better quality (and less pro) than the dirty chimney.

I was out rappelling this route last fall, but the conditions were too wet to get beyond the first 5' on a TR. We had read about a stuck cam in the sign-in book, but didnt realize that we were ON the route where it was stuck.
Came back out here with my husband today to see if the cam was still there. Didnt see it the cam on the way down, but the dry (albeit, cold) rock convinced me to take a closer look by climbing back up. In retrospect, I should have tried harder to layback through the first section, rather than rely on jamming my feet in the large crack, but once I got beyond that point, it was pretty smooth sailing. Definitely looking forward to giving it another shot next spring when it warms up.
