DescriptionStart on a large flake directly below the first bolt with long moves. Continue through positive edges to the "diving board", and pass either through bad rock to the left, or do a thrilling hand traverse/mantle to the right. Passing the third bolt is the crux, and we continued left through the roof to a slightly grainy, but positive crack. Barlett describes the route moving right through another crack, but it doesn't look appealing.
Descend via a chimmeny n' crawl to the rear, towards Patagonia Pile.
The rock through the bolts is an uncommon smooth white stone, which feels almost like sandstone. The steep postive edges and cool diving board feature add to the allure. Given that it has no stars in either guidebook makes it seem like finding a hidden treasure. Plus the name is in a class all its own.
Thanks to whoever replaced the hangers!
