Start up as for Jolly Green Giant but cut left before that route's first bolt as you aim for a prominent undercling flake which slants up and right. Make tenuous friction moves along the flake and finish with progressively easier face as the rock slabs out at the top.
This quality route is one of the more difficult ones in the area and consequently sees far less traffic than most of the others, but if climbing at the grade is a recommended route.
Years ago when the original bolts were replaced a pin driven upwards into the flake was replaced with a bolt making this a better protected and safer endeavor.
Just left of Jolly Green Giant and two routes left of Giant Step.
6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (all 3/8")

Probably the best route at big rock, thin steep moves with some nuts and a bolt as I remember.
