Description 

To locate this route wander to the east along the base of Weather Watchers Wall through the talus past the "large free standing flake" just below and left of Weather or Not. Continue moving east about 50 yards until a short bolted seam line appears. This route starts just right of a shallow right facing dihedral. The climbing begins directly out of the talus. The route consists of difficult liebacking plus offers iron cross type movement. Move left a bit at the fourth bolt for the 5.11 variation which is the more popular version on this route. There is a direct variation that can be climbed between the fourth and fifth bolts and checks in around 5.12a/b. Unfortunatly the crux foothold on the direct seems to get smaller every year. The direct version was the way the first ascentionist originally redpointed the route. The finishing moves will keep your attention. Short but worthy.
