This is a fun and varied face climb, with one short, steep, strenuous crux down low; some easy, exposed mantles higher; and then a balancy move over an overhang (second crux) onto a large traverse dike. It is in a shady location. There is good protection on the hard moves, but some long runouts on easy ground.
This route could be considered a direct start to the upper part of Second Thoughts. Well around to the right from T.S. Special, climb up a dike (the left of two) to get to the upper ramp.
