Description 

The route is located just to the north on the short trail from "left one." It's obvious to see the ramp leading just to the right of the roof (crux of sorts) and left of the chimney. a small but fun traverse left which is protected closely by three bolts (although the first and second bolts on the ramp are a little run out) followed by a small and positive overhang brings you to a small crack system which takes stoppers. two more bolts to the chains. make sure to use proper extensions to avoid rope drag.

Protection 

7 bolts to chains. full set of stoppers.

WARNING!!!! 

There is a well-established hive of bees in a crack to the right of the "Lazy S" chimney, as you first approach that rock, close to the ground.

If you're looking for a wildly contrived and unsustained line up complete choss with poor bolt placement, this may be the climb for you. Oh, and there are bees everywhere and the approach sucks. Quite possibly the worst climb I've ever seen.
