PUBLIC LOGBOOKS
This climb is in 137 logbooks, and on 2 wishlists.

Climb the wall to the right of the obvious groove until you pull over left into the flake system and follow that to the top wall (very nice moves to the horizontal break below the top wall where the flakes run out) and climb obvious pockets to the lower off. Worth a * once you know the line!
