Start at the prominent rib on the left of the wall and pull up on small holds past the first bolt. Continue up the groove, moving right on to the wall at the fourth bolt. Run-out on good holds to the scrubby ledge to the right, with anchor bolts just above.

The Path To Enlightenment
Start up the groove with a thin rib at the right and bridge to good holds, then small holds on the bulge to reach great jugs above. From the ledge at the third bolt move right and up a little, then back left to the fourth bolt and run it out on easy ground to anchor rings slightly to the left above the scrubby ledge. Four bolts. Lindsay Main, 1999.

Start on the left of the very prominent ear-like rib on the right of the wall and pull on to the ledge. Place medium to large cams in flared cracks and move up to the crux at the fourth bolt. Continue straight up to the last bolt and traverse right to the anchor rings. Six bolts - the first and last have chain links. Joe Arts, 1999.
