Start 10 feet to the left of the bolts(Good Clean Fun), up a steep part of the wall and into a shallow vertical trough, continue up and angle left under a small roof, then straight up to a belay on a small ledge. 2nd pitch go straight up the outside of a bulge for 20 feet, then foot-traverse to the left around a small arete and into a dihedral that leads straight up to the top.

Descent Options:

Hike up to a notch in the ridge and north down the coulour on the other side to the trail. Or you can climb or solo(upper left) Science Friction wall directly above to gain the top of the ridge, and follow that East to the trail.

4 out of 5 stars First Ascent

A nice route. It changes from a face climb to a dihedral/crack about half way through. From the top you can walk South to climb something on Science Friction wall, or walk down to the North and to the trail if it is raining.
