At the first bolt, instead of climbing straight up the slab (10+), you can also traverse right, then up (5.10-) for an easier variation to reach the second bolt. After clipping the second bolt, move down a few feet, then move left at a horizontal seam (5.10b/c, height dependent) to reach a fin of rock that is liebacked to easier climbing and the rap slings. Rap 90 ft.
This route has some of the best rock in Indian Cove campground.
