Rappel from Morning Glory rap station. Start on the far left end of the pedestal. Climb about 15 feet to bolt (no protection before this. Is pretty easy climbing, but DO NOT FALL!) After bolt move slightly left and follow path of least resistance through corners to the top.

5 out of 5 stars I loved this route!

This gets 2 stars in the book. I would give it 3. Is not for the newer 5.9 leader. Not only is the start and the ocean below you rather intimidating, it may be 5.9 moves but requires 5.10/11 route reading and technique. I really like it though!
