Description

Yes, I know it's spelled wrong, but that's the route name as listed in the 1981 guide. As far as I can reconstruct from the old description, this seems to be the route.
Ascend the black licheny face, wending through a series of horizontal seams and overlaps. After passing by a mild surprise near the top, find a way to obtain the summit of Mosaic Rock. May be on the soft side of 5.8, but I left it as rated in the old guide.

Location

This shady line lies on the north face of Mosaic Rock, about 50 yards west of Summer Dreams. The route starts in a little swale between Mosaic Rock and a granite fin that abuts the dome (called "Eagle Rock" in the old guide). There's a big broken chimney just to the left, and a hard-looking thin face just to the right. Descend the standard walk-off.

Protection

Single set of cams to #3 Camalot. This would have been an interesting lead on just nuts and hexes....
Gear anchor on top.
