A nice and varied climb with adequate protection. Climb the roof above a narrowing in the ledge, then go direct up the smooth wall on finger edges. It feels bold to start and again to finish.

I love this route! It's got a bit of everything -- a roof, monos, and a technical blank upper wall,
which actually isn't as blank as it looks. Bit thin on gear near the top, but the difficulties are brief.

guidebook must have put quite a few people off this route but i found good gear all the way. nice varied route.

The gear at the start of this route is poor, however a very good small wire (or two) can be placed in the crack to the left of the head wall, and is therefore well protected. Harder than it looks from below!

The CC description which describes climbing the headwall via "three small finger-edges" is helpful.
