A good route which follows a slanting groove in the big wall. The start of the second pitch has a bold and technical move that is much harder than the rest of the route. Start below a crack which runs from right to left through the initial bulges.
1) 5a, 20m. Climb the butch crack and flake to the break - more strenuous than it looks. Traverse left to belay on a ledge below the slanting groove.
2) 6a, 30m. Make a very thin move up and right into the groove using a hidden crimp (poor wire) and establish yourself in the groove. Move up then left around a bulge at the top. Continue up the wall and slabby groove above to the left-hand end of the large roof. Finish straight up easy cracks.
