Move above the pin which marks the start of this climb. The mantle leads to some loose love as you cruise some 4th class terrain and pass a pin or two.Place some pro and move up into the tall V slot. Continue up a shallow corner and as you do so keep your eyes out right for this routes lone bolt. From the bolt move up and take aim for either of the climbs above. ( "What's you Talkin''bout Willis?" or "The Gary Coleman Corner)
If you come to visit Dana at the right time she may provide you with quite a suprising treat.


About 200' up from the "Minions of Chaos" crag and 200' down from "Onery Miss Garrett" locate a fern and ring pin in a corner. This is the start for this climb


A full rack and plenty of slings should get you there. This pitch is long and usually results in simul climbing. There are plenty of chances for natural belays if you choose.
