Warning: The first 20 feet of this climb are unprotectable and have sent many an unprepared climber to hospital.

Boulder the (un-protectable) start of Double Cross.

Ascends the curving arete right of Double Cross, pulling a roof on large holds halfway up. Enter a gulley, step right over blunt lip onto slab beneath roof, and head straight up clipping three bolts and a pin en route to a two-bolt anchor. Some discrepancyon the grade, but it's a safe lead.
