Scary and commiting for its grade. Start just left of "Sex in the Scrub Oak" on the steep face/arete. Climb some schwaggy rock past a few thinly spaced bolts to access the arete and nicer clombing. It may be possible to supplement the bolts with some thin wires or small TCU's. Rappel with two ropes. In my opinion (GO) the climb is pretty well protected. Just don't blow the move to that first bolt!!!
