Start in the large crack with good gear. At the crux roof traverse right and pull the roof in the middle. The gear is weird here so make sure you get a good piece or two in the crack before you leave it. Pull the roof then continue up the easier face to a good crack that runs to the top of the cliff. Gear is good in the beginning and end but a bit sparse in the middle.

Start using the crack system under the left roof. Once you reach the arete traverse to the right crack system by pulling around a small arete. Then climb to right crack to just beneath the roofs. Pull up between the roofs to top out. The crux is the top out where the feet run out. Good variety of movements and features for such a short climb at this grade.
