(5.7 A2 / 130ft / gear to 3.5in) Climb the hanging, inset crack, and hanging corner right of Old #7; aid the friable roof to gain it (hooks, 1 LA). The crack (5.9) ends atop the small ledge shared by Old #7. Step right on exposed free moves (5.7) and climb expanding rock to a brief, but clean hairline crack. Sidestep right to a dirty crack that takes medium cams. Above, a corner-ramp system leads to the base of the summit overhangs. Climb steep terrain to the right before cutting back left and escaping to the exit slab (5.6). If desired, belay at the corner-ramp and break the route into 2 pitches.
