Description 

P1 -- Obvious traverse from up in the alley towards the arete to ledge to anchors (possibly sketch). Belay from here.
P2 -- pull bulge and finish up the route to the top with easy climbing.

Location 

Starts in the alley. Finishes on top of where Lucy ends up. Rap with double ropes to the ground, or rap to ledge on Lucy with single then pull rope and rap again to ground.

Protection 

Standard rack. Tricams are awesome. If it makes you feel better, you can step and clip one of the bolts from Zombie Stomp.

Somewhat sparse gear, but straight-forward 5.7 climbing. One cold-shut at belay ledge under roof, can be backed up with a 00 TCU. Classic route, don't pass this one up!
