Above the tree crossing, at the left end of the Patio traverse. Stick clip the 1st bolt and climb up steep rock through a bulge. Crack the crux and follow bolts up steep face to a 2-bolt anchor. Excellent climbing!
6 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.

A blast. Much better and more sustained than it looks. I would rate it 11d, since it's only a touch easier than its 12a neighbors, War on Peace and Underbelly.

Hmmm...I hope that this is not cheating, but, if start on the left side of opening dihedral and grab the huge block on the left, one can make the crux move passing bolt 1 for two or three letter grades easier. A big reach to the right by-passes most of the hard stuff. Another fun line by Bob and Vaino.

Merry Maids and a few more ascents will bring this route squarely into "stardom". So much lichen and mess dropped down on my tee-shirt, it took a few minutes to find it... Certainly, worth doing. I must have missed the "jug on the left"... I'd say solid 11.c

I thought this was a great (albeit short) route, and I'm psyched to go back for the redpoint. I stick-clipped #1. There is usually a suitable stick at the base for this purpose. The key (BETA!) for me was finding the left kneebar that allowed me to clip #2. Without that, I get too pumped trying to clip #2. You can rest on the kneebar for a second after clipping and proceed.
