This is a climb with a good but short crux section. Climb up some broken rock on scant gear for a few meters up to reach the base of a thin, right-facing, offset flake. Get some holds in the thin crack behind the flake, and pull through the crux up and over that. Take a stance up top and climb up and right into the corner to merge with 'Blank Sheets.'
This route lies just to the right of Blank Sheets, with which it merges, and perhaps 20 meters uphill from Idly I De-Ice, the distinctive corner and roof of the area.
Pro from thin cams and stoppers at the crux to hand or fist-sized cams at the top. The bottom section is scant for pro but is easy and not far from the ground.
To descend, find the black sling and rap from the tree.
