 Starts in a shallow groove and climbs right of a flaky area as the groove steepens. Tricky bridging (crux) to a stable position below a short crack to a vegetated ledge, then up another short crack with a small bush to a larger ledge with a five-finger tree. Climb the V-chimney behind the tree, moving left at the top on good holds to another short steep crack. Belay and abseil from a sling and and ring on a small tree.
