Challenging and fun for 5.7, not the greatest rock. Above the road guardrail, slither up-through-behind flake/chimney to belay. (Maybe fixed gear, but back-up/build belay as necessary.) Move left around corner and climb up second chimney. (This can be difficult for some, bring large pro...) Continue up face to top. Rap with one rope. (Somewhat manky anchors last I was there -'02, may have been replaced since...but don't bet on it.)

very cool route, that was done in '36?!?!? simply amazing! 5.7 for sure, don't buy into the hype of such thing in 1936!
