A strenuous, overhanging traverse makes this an exciting line.
Start up the shallow, right-facing corner and clip the first two bolts. Find a way to the third bolt to the right, under the roof. Head up and traverse right and up along the lip of the roof, stopping for a strenuous clip at the fourth bolt. Keep moving right a bit and then head up, clipping several more bolts to the chains. (As you head up you’ll see two sets of gray-painted chain anchors; go to the left set).
On the right (east) side of the gully 50 to 75 feet upslope from the black streaks find a roof with an angling lip that rises from left to right. The route starts under the left of this roof in a shallow corner.
6 bolts, chain anchors (shared with Angus, to the right).

This thing has fun movement and the climbing is very fingery. Good times!

This route had a short fun section in the middle clipping the third and fourth bolts, but the rest of the climbing was pretty boring. Not worth going all the way up the gully for this one route, but if you're going to be climbing a few then throw this one in for good measure.
