Getting started may be the hardest part of this climb. With an awkward move you can wedge your body up into a somewhat chimney move. The first 60' is a combination of jamming in one of two cracks (effectively hugging the rock) until a small ledge with a tree. Rap here or continue up another double crack system with a few laybacks and near chimney moves until you come to the true chimney. A few easier moves and you are at a ledge with two old 1/4" bolts and a large flake to rap from. Lancelot can also be TR'ed from here. I may not make it sound too fun, but its certainly a fun deviation.
Follow the stream bed out of the West end of Camp 4, it is on the second crag you come to on the left side. Scramble up a small dirt slop to a shaded flat landing. A large block is leaning against the wall which marks the base of Lancelot, Cid's Embrace is around the corner to the left.
