The route starts on the left side of the arete that is just to the right of the start for Garfield (same as Tap and Die). Climb up and traverse right on to the flake where the small pine tree is growing on the arete. Climb to the top of the flake and turn the corner on the arete. You come back left again at the final bulge before the anchors. The route protects well with small gear, but you get out from your pro a little bit at times. Save a blue TCU for the final section. As always, make sure your placements count on this one. Shares anchors with Tap and Die and Eric's route to the right. One of the best routes for the grade at Rushmore.....quality
Doubles on small cams #00 to .75 BD, RP's, Nuts, Runners.
Note: The flake in the middle section is hollow sounding and thin, probably best to protect with nuts as cams might shear or pull the thing off.

Rated E for Everyone, as long as you take it when you get it, wife is good; beware, do not pass an opportunity if she is willing to give it up.

Good route. I went right on accident instead of strait up and left at the end. Try it sometime the traverse is hard then you will get to the end of it and wish there was some gear.
