Starts from a triangular rock, against the base.
Left of "Regular Route".
Climb straight up the face, through a tunnel.
A fun, easy solo.
The description in the Supertopo Tahoe Guide is incorrect.

Don't remember anything on this route qualifying it for an "X" rating. Solid liebacking traverse with decent pro then up through tunnel.

What liebacking. You're on another route dude. This goes straight up an unprotected face.
I think 70' or whatever it is, with no pro would be considered X.

The lieback is Rain Song I believe, about 5.7/5.8 and it goes straight up the juggy konobs about 20-25' up the lieback, with some decent knob tie-offs. Anal Sex goes straight up the face through the tight tunnel/batwings/flakeish thing past some crimps and a knob mantel, def an X route. Felt more like 5.9 on lead to me, but then I am far from a soloist.
