Start in the "Yellow Jacket" dihedral, or alternatively, in arch to left. The arch to left is 11+ and extremely difficult to protect. Climb through dihedral and veer left at crumbly rock. Go past three bolts up obvious shallow arch. Finish onto ledge with two bolt anchor. This route needs cool dry weather.

Descent Options:

rappel, or continue on "Oven's Gift" and "Unlikely Promise" to top.

5 out of 5 stars Do this in cold dry weather.

To me, the route felt impossible when humid. In the winter, felt 12A. after attempting it several times my hand went numb for a few hours. hard underclinging, and very insecure.
