Hillside lies three routes left of Walking On The Sun where a narrow slot takes you up and left of several additional routes. The climbing starts in a short hand traverse on a good, detached flake. A crux move followed by a long reach up and a bit right leads to moderate face climbing on great incut flakes. This route is a kick, and provides a good warm up for the harder climbs. I wouldn't miss it.
QD only. 5 or 6 draws is all you need. Take something for the double bolt anchor at the top. The route is about 60 ft long.

This is a really good route for people who can't normally lead 11 but have a little pulling power.
