The crux of the climb is the 5.11b start, but don't let that grade discourage you. French free or aid the first 15 feet, and the grade falls to 5.10a C0. Save some strength for the finger locks through the last 15 feet of the route.
First Free Ascent: Lloyd Price et al., 1967
Possibly the first 5.11 freed in Yosemite?
First Ascent: Joe Oliger, Steve Roper, Apr 1961
