I have heard how people get lost on the 2nd pitch traverse so I will add: go right till you are traversing under and around a roof till you have to mantle up past a small tree, pass 2 button head RAWL bolts on face going right and uphill till you see the 2 hangers of the belay.
If when you top out and are not climbing one of the great routes at the Warrior wall you can rap down to the top of Straight Street anchor and make 2 single rope raps to Off Duty area.

|good route. worth doing with a short approach and mellow descent. solid slab pitches at the grade that have just enough pro to not be run out but still engaging.|

|Great route. Correction on pitch 1...guidebook shows 9 bolts, but there were only 7 bolts. Wish we had known that. Went back down, re-checked guidebook and took some small TCUs to bridge the gap between 5 and 6th bolt....easy climbing but would be a bit runout w/o gear. All in all, we had a great time.|
