The first pitch (5.2) follows the ramp on the far right of The Bend center area to a belay ledge beneath a tree ~15 feet above. Second pitch (5.8) goes up the crack just left of the tree and then moves left to hand crack for another ~55 feet.
For rappel, follow trail west to chains at top of Pure Joy (The Bend West) - single rope.
Gear to 3 inches. Build anchor for 1st pitch. Bolts at second pitch.

This route has always been done as one pitch. You can approach from the ramp to the west (class 3) and belay from the ledge or start from the ground directly below the route. Either way the route goes in one pitch. 140 feet from the ledge or 180 feet from the ground.
