this route is on the south West corner of the Valley MAssif. It is the leftmost of some cracks across the pretty slab seen from a distance. Its 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.
