BETA PHOTO: Triple roofs indicating you're under the right rou...
Pitch one - Climb straight up through triple roofs to an anchor on large ledge. Fun climbing on good rock, a little dirty. 100', 5.9.
Pitch two - Quite possibly the nicest piece of stone in the area. Using gear and quickdraws, ascend steep face to anchor. 100', 5.11c.
Pitch three - Nondescript 5.8 to the top. 100'.
This route is just to the left of Da Kine Line, and is in between DKL and High Times. Rap down the Green Mile with a single 60m or rap down DKL with a 70m. Pitch two climbs obvious, clean face to the right of the giant dihedral which is the route High Times.
Small trad rack plus draws. All anchors have two bolts except the first one is one bolt and a fixed nut.

This route is super fun! A little heads up at times but super fun.

I agree, amazing quality stone with exciting moves in a beautiful backcountry setting. It keeps you thinking from bottom to top. Great find, guys!

Yeah, this is a great climb! The F.A. involved several huge whippers late in the afternoon right up at the top of the 2nd pitch. Finally whimpering thru those last moves, that bolt waaaayy below me....whew!
Man! gotta get up there!
