This is a fun, but short, route. It follows a dihedral above the overhanging aid roof (see guidebook) on yellow lichen stained rock. Climb up and place bomber stoppers before stepping left on the slab (crux). There are little dishes for your feet. For your hands, scrouch down and undercling a tiny edge behind your head. Shuffle left for a few moves, and it is over. It feels hard the first time, but after you wire it, it isn't that bad. The trick is using the little undercling behind your head. Many people miss that and have trouble with this route.
