BETA PHOTO: The right end of the Upper Dodge City formation.


This route shares part of the first pitch of Canadian Driftwood (aka The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance). Diagonal up that route to a ledge where a sharply left leaning dihedral goes up to a horizontal crack at a roof. Lieback the crack (5.10), hand traverse left and enter a flare with a hand crack in back. A short distance above is a nice ledge on the left. Continue up the straight in crack passing a small awkward roof (5.9+) and on to the top.

You could belay right after the hand traverse as the rope drag after the hand traverse is BAD.
