(from the Falcon Guide) *** Prospective leaders should have a thorough grounding in crack technique. This route follows the flake system just north of the lightning cables for the transmission tower. Pitch 1: Start right of the cables and improvise your way up into the offwidth crack (you may have to face the water to do this). Belay at the ledge. Pitch 2: Work up and right of the flake to the top. Or, a 5.9+ variation requires climbing the offwidth to the left of the final flake. Needless to say, avoid this route in bad weather and take pro for wide cracks.

Don't attempt the first pitch unless you 1.) intend to run out 20-30 ft of an off-width or 2.) have some big off-width gear (big bros, huge cams). Otherwise the second pitch is a great ledgy and exposed lead.
