This route is located on the right side of the middle section of Hemingway Buttress. Start to the right of "For Whom the Poodle Tolls" under a dual crack system. The start requires a traverse right under the previous route on fairly good holds. Ascend the left crack until surmounting an obvious bulge. At this point, traverse right into the right crack and follow it to the top.

Cool opening moves felt 10ish on less than perfect pro. Pretty fun.
