Ascend bolted face just right of right slanting mungy roof. Directly after bolt 5 is a no hands rest on a small pedestal. After clipping bolt 6 comes the mega-thin crux passed via a traversing left around a small roof (often a leaver-biner is here). At bolt 8 is a thin seam/bulge and the last two bolts are to the left. Continues for several more pitches, capping with a dead-hard 13d face pitch that ends at a blank wall (and two bolts). Counterparts is the testpiece of the area and a Burke Masterpiece. Alex Huber made the second ascent of this route.
