This is another scrappy Camp Bird, multi-pitch route. It has fun, steep, groove climbing with gear where you need it.
The route starts at the top of a snow cone in the steeper rock gully immediately left of "Negligent Behavior". Stem and pull on turf up the groove for 5 to 6 pitches. After the last crux at the top, coil ropes and hike up and left. Rappel off of trees down the buttress via fixed slings.
Bring a single set of cams from TCUs to #3 Camalot, a few pins, and a set of nuts.

This is a cool mixed voyage up natural grooves. The first ascent was done in a May snowstorm, which complimented the scrappy nature of the route. Be warned: protection on the upper pitches is limited, and the climbing is thought provoking throughout. As with all routes in this area, be ready to run it out.
