Rightmost line on the wall. Climb the asthetic face just right of a large scoop in the cliff. A bouldery start leads to comfortable stances and fun moves to a thinner finish.

I don't carry a stick clip but I would 'fashion' one for this route if I did it all again. The first clip is made pretty high up on said bouldery start while making crimpy moves left. Didn't blow it but it would be easy to do. The remainder of the climb is classic rrg pickpocket style with fingery jugs, sidepulls, and underclings.

This route is very fun. There is definitely an 11b move after the first clip.

sharp rock! good tough problem at the bottom then fun climbing

agree that you can clip from the flake before moving out left to the boulder problem. pretty easy climbing through the middle of the route to a bit of business up near the anchors. however (beta alert), if you have long arms you can probably clip the anchors from the good ledge a few feet below (especially if your partner hangs the draws for you!).
