Small to medium gear, most of it is fixed. Double ropes useful to reduce drag, necessary to get off.
p. 1 At the base of the low angled buttress is a 6 foot high ledge with a bolt above it. Make the mantle (5.7), clip the bolt, and make a move up and left. Wander up the slabs to a belay at an old piton (thread and tricam nearby) where the angle increases.
p. 2 Wander your way up the steeper wall, weaving left and right across the blunt nose. Aim for the beautiful white flake on the left side of the prow to finish. When in doubt, usually go right. There's some committing moves above your gear, harder if short.
1 double rope rap.

heady move up past the first bolt to gain the clipping stance for the second. Crux moves are well above your last piece and it's much easier for someone over 6' tall to make that long move out to the left. All in all, it's a great route with excellent rock and good exposure, sure to keep the blood pumping and mind focused!
