This new (2006) face route on Main Wall is excellent! Climb up to a bolt, up left into a flake which can be protected with #1 or #.75 Camalots, past another bolt to another flake which takes good cams as well. Then, another 5 or so bolts to the anchor. Rap off with a 60m rope. Lowering will kill your rope on this one.
50' left of Arctic Breeze on main ledge. Probably about 50' right of Stem Meister.
Bolts, an assortment of cams. (I used yellow Alien, #1 and #2 Camalots...)

Did this one again today. Fantastic route, slightly overhanging in some sections, with biggish positive dikes.
This one will be harder for some shorter folks, I really had to stretch to make a move, at 5'10".
Definitely worth doing on a main ledge cragging day, or if you're waiting in line for corrugation.

As of the summer 08 this rt goes to the top of the wall @ .10d (maybe pg) I did most of the rt, but got off rt after about 4 pitches.

Actually this route went to the top shortly after it was first put up in 06. Short .10d section but mostly much easier (dirty) climbing.

A must-do if you are climbing on Main Wall and not just gunning for the Corner classics.
