This route begins in the middle of the last face before the corner of the wall. Look for a U shaped ledge about ten feet up. Jump up to the ledge to start. Pull a tough mantel then continue up the technical face to a large ledge before the crack. Take a breather then crank through the fingercrack to another ledge. Continue up through a sketchy dihedral to anchors.
Can also downclimb Green Gully for a descent.

Maybe 12a, but i dont think it gets an R rating, little sketch off the ledge after the mantle, possible ground fall after first cam in pocket going to the bolt, but easy moves, beautiful old school heady climbing.

I agree with 12a, and I think the risk of a groundfall is the definition of R rated? Not to mention, a fall in the upper dihedral would likely result in a bounce off the ledge. However, the climbing is amazing, and the hardest climbing is well protected.
