Start in a vertical crack at the left end of the wall to the left of "Kitchen's Delight". After 15ft join an arching crack and move to the upper right slanting crack. A large knob is situated underneath the midpoint of the crack. Continue along the crack and make a dash to the vertical across a slab with little pro. Take the vertical crack to a small niche below the offwidth and belay here. Climb the offwidth to the top

Descent Options:

Rap bolts off of the southeast face.
