Climb past the first 3 bolts of "Immaculate Deception" up and left to a good stance below a gorgeous left-leaning crack. Enjoy fine fingerlocking and laybacking until you reach a thin dihedral below the chimney. Crank on up and clip the anchors on Triple Stack (50 Bucks) or continue up the chimney to an exposed ledge with bolted anchors on the right. From here it is also possible to climb a short (but dirty) chimney for another 20 feet to the actual clifftop.
Moves: Crack and Face
Descent: Ring Anchors

Wild and exciting!

The crux is bolt protected. The arching crack is mostly 5.8 or 5.9 climbing and it is quite fun.
