Description 

Hop up into the big curving crack/chimney and lean out to clip the first bolt. This protects you as you get established on the slab and then the next couple moves to the left which are the crux. After that its easy edges up the low angle face to a bolted belay. This route went in just before the park service mandated camouflaged bolts and hangers, so they're nice and shiny. If you want to, try the TR problem directly below the rappel. It starts off the top of a boulder on nice holds. Pretty tough, like a V4 with a crumbly slab above.

Location 

On the nice looking, smallish brown block just left of Becky's Buttress.

Protection 

Three bolts lead to a bolted belay/rap station.
