Description 

This route lies just to the right (E) of Bride on Wedding Rock. Start immediately east of the huge flake wedged between wedding rock and the short fin to the south.

Large flakes diminish and yield to thin crimps as you approach the second bolt. This is the crux. Sustained and vertical climbing eventually eases as the route merges with Bride. Cruise to the anchors and enjoy the view!

Protection 

Four bolts to a two bolt anchor. The last bolt and anchor are shared with Bride just to the left (W).

Just a note: this route can only be toproped if you first lead Bride to the west...
