This route goes up the face immeadiately right of the chimney/gully leading up to the base of "Oh My God". There are 3 different starts, all converging on the bolts in the middle of the face. Continue up to low-angle ground at the base of a steep headwall. Optional (and quite strenuous) would be continuing up a fist crack through this headwall.

Descent Options:

Walking left along the ledge around a corner leads down the the "Oh My God Dihedral" approach gully. Descend this back to the base.

3 out of 5 stars Alternate start...

I started by climbing the steep corner that's down and to the right, and up the crack to the small pine tree, then worked left to the bolts and up. Makes the route significantly longer - and longer=more fun!
