FA Terry Andrews, Julie Emery, and Matt King, 2004. Start in the chimney on the far south end of the formation (next to the blown down tree that somehow lives). At the top of the chimney, place pro and then go straight up and follow a thin crack over a bulge. Then head up and right to the last headwall. After placing gear in the horizontal crack at your feet, Move right to the edge and then face climb to the top. One move of 5.8 at the finger crack the rest is not harder than 5.7. About 100 feet or so to top. Either place cams or sling a big boulder for the belay on top of Crab Eyes.

i think i went right at the middle bulge after placing a 3.5 and friction climbing through the bulge. A little sketched 15ft out. Top headwall is awsome.
