Not sure if this is the "original" line, but the one we took. None of the photos/descriptions I've seen or read really give much detail. . .

-Start on the grey/orange rounded face on top of the boulder above Babies and just left of the Left Chimney (behind/under my right-most shoulder in the photo)
-Move up and left towards a thin fingers crack that goes up and left (see my left-most ear in the photo). Delicate balancey moves here.
-Thin fingers turn to a nice rail for a few feet then move up into a really flared crack/small dihedral (rope and its shadow seen in the photo run right up this part). A bit awkward mantling onto the rail/small ledge at the bottom of the flared crack.
-Lay back the flared crack/dihedral for a few moves, then make a precarious and balancey move far right to a decent knobby hold just under the right-most, and lower of two parallel cracks.
-Solid jams in the right crack, then move to the left crack, or use both.
-Much easier ground from here. Jun 3, 2013
