Description 

This route starts at the same location as Politicians, Priests, and Body Bags, about 50' left of the painted 67. Climb up the right-facing dihedral as for PP&BB, but get onto the ledge to the left before you get to the first bolt. Then climb up a hand crack on a slightly overhanging face to a V-shaped slot and scramble up to the top.

The climbing is no harder than 5.8, but it's a bit tricky, and there aren't any rests above the ledge for a while, so gear-placement can be a bit tough. Not so good for top-roping, because the route wanders a bit and because it's a tough place to set up a good TR anchor. Nonetheless, the climbing is quite fun.


Protection 

Several medium cams (about #1 or #2 Camalots, maybe a bit smaller for the bottom). Larger nuts may work in places, but are tough to set well. Long slings - the route wanders. Maybe a cordalette to sling a boulder at the top.

A worthy Golden Cliffs trad route. Fun stems and jams up the initial corner, then a thin-hands crack and an airy layback into a V-slot.

Pro: Aliens to a #.75 Camalot; two or three #.75 Camalots to sew it up.

Belay from the top; go back and then right for the walk down.

Don't be scared off if all you don't have many cams. I found that larger nuts were easy to place. I used a #2, #1 and #0.75 Camalot, but would not have needed that many cams if I had a double set of nuts.

There is now an independent bolted anchor for this route. I don't know the origin, but it certainly seems to be more environmentally responsible to rap off than to create more erosion by walking down.

There are two #1 Camalots stuck in the crack. You only need up to a #0.75 Camalot. The crux on this is only a few moves.
