Scramble up to a ledge and traverse to the right to the obvious crack. Ascend the crack to the underling flake moving left. Follow the flake left and finish up the dihedral. This climb shares a bolted anchor with the Wheels on Fire Direct variation on the right. Take care not to climb past the anchors on the right about 10 feet from the top - it's easy to cruise right past them. Great pro the whole way. The crux is the last 8 feet below the undercling flake.

Descent Options:

Two ropes easily gets you down to the base of the scrambling. One 60 meter might, but you'll probably have to do a slightly sketchy downclimb move.

Some fun, interesting moves. I took a pretty good fall on this, but it was clean. Secure pro the whole way
