Start as for Trotsky. Head up & left after triangular hole @ 15 feet, avoid using right facing flake next to short left facing corner. Using this flake & corner makes the climb considerably easier (it's the crux of Trotsky). Pull over slightly overhanging juggy flakes to a no-hands rest just below the slab crux. Follow shallow corner to crack to large ledge. Build belay in horizontal crack at back of ledge OR place a directional, traverse right along ledge and finish up 6 foot tall wide crack to ledge. Build anchor in vertical crack.
