This route is on the southwest corner of the Valley Massif. It is the leftmost of some cracks across the pretty slab seen from a distance. It's a 2 star Vedauwoo moderate, but the descent brings it down to 1 star in my opinion, but maybe there is a better way.
Climb 200' of easy 5.4 crack to a belay ledge below a headwall.
Stem and jam your way up the steep/short corner and take a hard right on a ramp to a boulder strewn ledge (short lead).
Down-slab near a wide crack (feels sketchy) to find rap bolts. These are strange bolts but seemed solid. Rap ~60' to another set and rap to the ground. I would discourage a double rope rap as your ropes will likely be eaten.
Bring a set of cams to #3.5 Camalot.
Long shot of Valley Massif.

The rap is annoying, but this climb get 1 star because it is fairly monotonous and mostly 5.4.... It can be finished directly by going straight up the crack instead of traversing right and probably goes at about 5.7+ this way.
