Basically an alternate first pitch to Strange Cargo (it's to the left), distinguished only by a more difficult move at the initial roof and lower quality rock. Can be used as an approach to some of the far left Lost Angel routes which normally require a rappel. 5.11 slab and excellent.
Fully bolted. [Eds. You can lower off the P1 anchor or continue up and right to merge with Strange Cargo.]

Stevie Danboise did the first on this one. Sorry no beta.

Much easier roof moves than Strange Cargo. Short & fun. Easy for the grade.

This is a totally fun route with really well placed bolts. The initial crux is best surmounted by stemming. The roof is stiff but can be done well if you can keep your feet low and underneath you. 5 bolts and a two bolt anchor. When surmounting the roof look for the secret handhold out right.

Regarding the First Ascent: I cleaned, bolted and led this route during the summer of 1996 with the help of Leah Macaluso and Bonnie Von Grebe. If I had found any evidence of a previous ascent, I certainly would not have bothered with it. This would be the missing beta.

Did this and continued on to the second pitch of Strange Cargo. I'm not sure that this was the best idea, as there was lots of rope drag.
