Just southwest of the Mean Mistreater Wall. There is a large southeast facing wall and a north facing wall in a gully.

Getting There 

Take the same approach for Mean Mistreater. Continue along the face past a large gully to another southeast facing wall with large broken right facing dihedrals.

Fantastic route. Awkward start to a right facing corner with nice jamming and stiff stemming. After the crack, transition left to cool face climbing protected by small gear in incipient cracks. There was a bolt out left (optional) but it seemed too far out of the way and would ruin an all trad climb. Place thin fingertip pieces in your last tiny crack and then run out the face on easier terrain to the top. If you have a lot of rope drag, expect a battle.Gear anchor at the top.

Two bolt rap station was installed at the top of Seventh Sojourn. Might need a 70 to get all the way down but a 60 should get you into the gully for an easy downclimb. More easily accessed than the anchors of Wrecking Ball.
