A pot of gold.  
This was roughly the line that I took. I found the crack angling right to left to be the easiest way up the first half to a little pocket my wife and I have dubbed "deceptive cavity" because it looks like it'd be a good handhold, but it's not. It does make a good foothold though. Then more or less straight up from there to the chains. No idea if this is technically the route or not, but we had fun with it.

Easiest way to set up TR on this was to have my belayer stand in campground 11 and lower me over the other side until I could secure into the bolts, set up the TR, and rappel down it. Wasn't pretty, but it was effective as we don't have any trad gear. Thankfully the wall and campsite 11 were vacant at the time, so we didn't get in anyone's way. Aug 16, 2015
