Start from the ground on a few mail slots and power up to a sloper or a shallow pocket before clasping the edge of a crack and flake. Be prepared for the fact that it isn't over yet... setting gear here will be strenuous, and a fall without it ill-advised.
Step up off of the stack of stones which normally sits below this route, or clasp the bomber left jug and hop to the right to get started. No matter which, this was not the crux. Hook a heel hard right on the long slope and work your way up on less-than choice holds to the left-leaning crack above (crux). The existing Flatirons guide lists this at 5.10d, but it seemed a few letter grades harder to me and to my partner.
Once pulled onto vertical terrain, continue up for a short distance, to about the place of the fixed sling for the rap from 'Like Heaven.' Traverse hard right to a spot where you are looking up a long, shallow corner into the 'Slot' of the summit of 'Like Heaven.' Find a belay to avoid a drag penalty later. Finish the route as for Slot, climbing up cracks and into and through the clean bomb-bay chimney up top, which is far easier than it looks (5.8) Belay up top and finish on the summit of Like Heaven and rap down.
