Description

Scramble up and right to bypass the initial steep and blank slab, then move up and left to reach the vertical line of edges and knobs. Climb to the overlap, reaching it at a point where it is broken into two "steps". Good gear here for the crux move; climb through the overlap and follow a crack in the low-angle slab to fixed anchor on an oak tree below the headwall.
From the top, one can traverse right below the headwall to join Benediction or Bella Vista, or descend.

Location

On a sloping ledge 100' above and left of the lowest point of the Bella Vista slab. This route begins 10' left of the right end of the ledge system, below a vertical line of knobs and plates running up the slab 20' left of the open book of Benediction.
Descend via rappel off the fixed anchor.

Protection

No gear for the first 60', however, after the first couple moves, the climbing is easy until one reaches the overlap, where good cam placements are abundant.
