The business of this route is the last 30'. The route is probably best done in one pitch. If you are tall or good with slab, this should feel soft for 10a. This is a good climb if you are in the area or are trying to break into the 5.10's. This climb is light-year's easier than What's Up Doc.
Begin the same as Peek-a-boo, at the landing above Jim Dandy. Start to the left of the base of a gully at some right facing flakes. Follow this to a large ledge with many horizontals at about 100'. Step left to a crack, belay here or continue up. Follow the crack to its end and clip two bolts through a steep slab section (crux). Make a short run to the top using sloper rails.
Locate Jim Dandy, then scramble up and left to another landing at a large wide gully. The bolts were the most noticeable shiny ones to the left of the wide gully. The bolts covered in lichen are for Aphid in My Pants.
Long runners, single rack, TCU's-#3 Camalot, tri-cams. Double ropes are needed for the rappel off of ring anchors.
