Scramble up and left through steep but easy terrain to the easy slab with two bolts. From the ledge above climb the right-leaning ramp with three bolts, and swing around to the anchor on the right. Take care with the flaky rock on the left.

Climb straight up the steep but straightforward rib past three bolts to a vegetated ledge; then trend right up the angled wall past three bolts to a steep finish, stepping left to the anchor ledge.
