Description 

Start to the right of the wide, right-slanting crack. Parallel the crack on small holds, working up and right through the crux to top out on a small pillar. Walk across the gully to a headwall. The psychological crux comes while stepping out into the exposure of the headwall, protected by the fourth bolt. Continue up over easier ground to the anchor, sheared with Blue Bayou. Rappel to descend.

Location 

Starts on the East face, farthest bolt line to the right; finishes around the corner on the north face.

Protection 

6 bolts, bolted anchor

An okay route that wanders all over the place with bolts in odd locations - chossaneering at it's best.
