Begin 20m right of the Love Route corner, on a ledge at the base of a right-facing corner (FP).
P1: Climb the corner (long pitch).
P2: Move up into a left-facing corner and belay below a rotten roof.
P3: Move right onto a nice, clean slab, and climb up and R (5.9) to the base of a right-facing corner.
P4: Climb the corner (5.9) to the big ledge.
P5-6: Follow Culp-Bossier.
P7: Angle up a long ramp (5.5) to the base of the crux pitch of Jackson-Johnson (a steep, right-facing corner with fixed pins).
P8: Climb the corner (5.9).
P9: Exit to the top. It is also possible to climb the wall (very runout 5.7) left of the 2 Culp-Bossier pitches, then move right on the ramp.
This is one of my favorite combos in the Park.
