Climb up a dirty(ish) gully to the first roof and traverse through it. Then head straight up the corner to where it is possible to step right onto the horizontal cracks. The more difficult route fades right, staying left of the large roof, and follows a juggy hand-traverse. The easier approach goes straight up, staying well left of the roof, and through the lichen to good holds and ledges.

Descent Options:

Walk left on the path to an easy walk-off about 50 feet away.

4 out of 5 stars Finally

Went back and got it clean. Not so pumpy when you know what's coming.

4 out of 5 stars Hold on period!

Ahh, my first 20-foot whipper. The memories.

Took the fall and lowered out of exhaustion. My partner TR'd to my previous high, and finished the final 15 feet on lead. I then seconded the route.
