Description 

Start in the hand crack to the left of "Free and Easy" and climb to a ledge (about 20ft). Continue up the slab and clip the bolts. A Two-bolt belay is above, near the "headwall" Veer right at the "headwall" and belay at the top of the first pitch of "Free and Easy". Rap the gully or continue up "Free and Easy"

Location 

Left of Free and Easy, right of 38th Parallel. Rap the gully at the top of the pitch, or continue up free and easy. In my mind its a crime not to continue up.

Protection 

0.5" to 3"( pro to 3" only if continuing up Free and Easy

I have been meaning to post about the length of the first pitch since I did this a year or so ago. We started all the way at the bottom of the buttress (which seemed like the obvious place to begin) and I had to simul-climb 15-20 feet so that my partner could hit the anchor (with a 70 meter rope). Without starting up and right a ways, I don't know how this could possibly be done without a 70m rope.

Per J. Alber's comments above, I added similar comments to the "Free and Easy" page. I started below the hand crack for the first pitch of F&E with a 60m rope. Had to simul about 20 feet to the anchor. A 70 would have done the trick for P1 of F&E. Haven't done this route, though.

I've fixed the descriptions of the route to reflect your comments better. When we did it we simulclimbed (which I forgot all about).

Anyway, one of the FAists added a two bolt belay to make this now a two pitch climb. I have not climbed this version of the climb...please let me kn ow if I need to edit anything else!
