Excellent climb place # 1 in flake after 2nd bolt. This climb is one of the best climbs at the grade in Mission Gorge. To find this climb head up Middle Earth trail past Shadow fax. Continue straight up hill 100 feet. At second canyon start left for 50 feet uphill. Climb is obvious four bolt climb on right wall. Shinny new bolts and rap anchor at top of climb.

I think this route is also called "Nameless Left of Dimrill Stair" in the PDF guide by Art Messier.

oh! definitely bring gear, a bit run out after the second bolt, easy climbing to the third bolt but don't fall!
