Climb the steep, yet moderate, wall to the lip about half way up the route, being sure to take advantage of any rests you can conjure. They do exist, although they can be a bit elusive. And they do make a difference, despite seeming unnecessary in this "easy" terrain. Once at the lip be prepared for powerful, beta intensive moves all the way to the anchor. Crimps, slopers, heel-hooks, flags, gastons, arete pinches, and a big cross-over move await. Oh, yeah, and some really hard clips.
Scramble onto the huge boulder which separates the route Waimea from the center of the crag. (Not as hard/scary as it looks). Butt Bongo is the route which goes up the center of the wall on top of the boulder and climbs the left arete.
