Either belay from the ground, or (my preference) scramble up to a slopey ledge at the base of the real climbing. Follow the obvious winding flake up the length of the slab. Top out on dirty chickenheads to a mossy ledge and head left to find the bolted anchor for Thin As Ice. Rappel the route with two ropes, rap twice using an intermediate anchor on Thin As Ice with one rope, or walk off.
Find the Snowbird Slab and you've found the route.
Pro to 1-inch. Bring lots of small cams.

Excellent route that gobbles up gear. Until the end when you have to run it out a bit on moss and mud left to get to the anchors. Good fun.

The bottom and the top of this are often a little...moist...

This route seems to wetter and dirtier every time I head out here. It might be about to loose some stars in my book, especially when compared to the other quality routes at this area.

I agree that it does seem to be getting dirtier with time. A fix to that might be to assess where the dirt is coming from up top, and take some steps to control the erosion! This is still a great route if it's clean, and it's worth taking steps to keep it from growing over.
