Starting (30 feet?) left of Smitty's Wet Dream, you will see an angling ledge system moving up and right then onto a blank face with four bolts. The blank face is the crux and was pretty slick in my memory. You are heading up and right to meet the top of Cranial Prophylactic.

Descent:75 foot rappel.


Basically quick draws will suffice (6 bolts + bolted anchors), however small nuts and cams could come in handy in a few places. Or... set up a top rope above Cranial Prophylactic.
