Follow four bolts to a bolted anchor. The natural line starts a little left of the first bolt. If leading, you will enter groundfall territory going to the second bolt. The crux comes between bolts two and four. After four, there is no more pro, but the climbing eases considerably to the anchor.


Next bolted line right of Straight - No Chaser (third bolted route from the left). The first bolt is maybe 12 feet off the ground. The easiest descent is a two rope rap. To walk-off, scramble approximately 15 feet left of the anchor, then right up an easy ramp. From here, one then negotiates a gravel slope to an easy ledge above the right hand routes, and hike down where possible.


4 bolts.

It is safest to top rope this route, just like most of the climbs on the left side of the dome. It is nice that the bolts have been replaced and made modern, but groundfall potential still exists.
