Start 5 feet left of an 8 ft high block. Climb up to a right diagonalling thin crack (gear recommended), then up and left to a small ledge. Continue up meandering right and left following the obvious line of weakness in the rock. The route finishes up a steep face to a bolted anchor.
Fun moves and a good line mark this route as a good first pitch on the way up the mountain. From the belay you can continue up the second pitch of "Cause for Pause" or start into "Parallel Universe".
From the first anchors it is two rappels down to the bottom.
Some cams (.25"-1.5") are recommended for the bottom section to prevent ground fall on the first 30 feet or so. After that bolts protect the remainder of the route.
Not "sport" bolted, but not terribly run-out either.
