Established a little over a week prior to the devastating Las Conchas Fire, this route ascends mostly good rock six feet left of Chocolate Chicken Pot Pie.
Straight forward climbing to the high first bolt leads to moves into grainy rock and the second bolt. The route steepens moving up past a third bolt into some bright orange lichen. Pull good pockets to the anchors.
It's a lot of climbing for three bolts.

Six feet left of Chocolate Chicken Pot Pie. The bright orange lichen near the anchors is easily identifiable.
3 bolts to chain anchor with fixed biners.
