Description:

On the wall by the downhill end of the large flat-topped boulder (the Pedestal, which sits 15' from the wall) is a L-facing corner with a nice crack. Climb this (you pass an ancient piton) to an easy slab. Now go right up onto a higher slab and continue traversing for 10m, and then up through the large break in the summit headwall (Hint: use the R hand wall of this break). With longer runners set appropriately this is can be done as one pitch (as opposed to the line described in Horst(?) - the OW slot over there is a pain in the butt and you don't waste time breaking 100' of climbing into 2 pitches).

Descent Options:

Hike back down.
