The loose rock and bad pro makes this a serious climb for the grade. Look for a pillar lying against the slab near the center of the apron. P1: Start on the left side of the pillar and follow corners to a tiny, dying bush with an ancient ratty sling. Back up this terrible anchor with equally bad nuts and cams in crap rock. Instruct your second not to fall. P2: Continue up the crumbly flake to a runout, easy slab. Belay below the roof off nice, solid, big hexes or cams behind a big flake. P3: Climb past a roof, then past a bulge, then up an easy, unprotected slab covered with loose rocks to a nice big tree. Breathe a sigh of relief. Descent: Scramble up the gully, then traverse left (exposed) to a slung tree. A double rope rap (60's) will get you to the top anchors of Real Domestic Chickens, which you can rap to the ground.

This was an adventure that I would not recommend to others. A tough approach, loose rock, and crap protection. The Apron is cool, though, if you make it back there, check out one of the other routes, they might be better.
