Direct start to Flying Frog. Pass two bolts to join FF on the face above. Pull the right facing dihedral.
Starts about 20' right of Mescaline Daydream.
Two bolts and an assortment of other gear.

Bolts were rusted, but hangers were in great shape. Another great face climb on that wall. A little dirty at the beginning, but don't let that deter you.

There are definitely a lot of worthwhile routes in TG obscured by rust, dirt, and weeds. I will probably sound like an alarmist, but the self-drive bolts on this route are well past their prime (not a whole lot better than a rusty 1/4 inch). The aluminum hangers are deceiving; they often cause galvanic corrosion on the steel bolt and sleeve and can flake and corrode themselves on the backside. These 8mm bolts fail under pretty low sheer loads anyway. At this point (20+ years later) they are unpredictable, and I do not like to climb over them.
