Start on the slab below the first bolt, clip then move up and right to gain an "weird" crack. Pull past 2 roofs then move right through lichen covered rock to Ellie Raynolds anchor ledge. Rap down or continue up the last two pitches of Ellie.
This route starts up the hill to the left of Ellie Raynolds Memorial Buttress. Just to the right of the large chimney beyond What's Up Doc.
