Chimney, crack, face holds, traverses, guano avoidance techniques; this route has a little bit of everything.
1st Pitch: Start up wide crack to fight with bush. Overcome bush, disappear into chimney. Reappear on face, follow crack into copious amounts of guano and traverse right on massive holds under roof to two bolt anchor that may have webbing. 80'. Warning: cannot top rope this pitch; too much rope drag.
2nd Pitch. From belay head left over bulge onto face. Fire past 3 bolts on slopey holds to slight run out to top. Two bolt anchor, may or may not have webbing. 60'
Descent. Walk off north or rap route with one rope if you brought webbing and rap rings.
The route is the obvious right facing crescent shaped corner on the far left side of The Indian Wall. See Goss's guidebook for the exact location.
Wide gear for 1st pitch. 3 quickdraws and maybe some smaller gear for the 2nd pitch.

Patrick, you sly bastard! I miss the HELL outta you. Looks like a great route I'll do it as soon as I can.
