Pitch 1 (5.8) - Start on a large grassy terrace directly beneath Machine Gun Jubblies. Make a rising traverse to the right to join the left-facing corner. The start is runout but sub-5.6 climbing. At a steeper section in the corner, where the climbing gets harder, you will get your first pro but it's quite a reachy placement. I Use a set-up like this to reach the constriction at the base of the crack if you want to protect the moves after the last bolt. to reach the higher and better constriction. From here climb up the arete and then back left into the corner. Follow the corner to a bolted anchor shared with the first pitch of Color Me Gone.
A second pitch (5.9) traverses to the right and I think it goes up a shallow right facing corner with a filthy black streak down the right-hand wall. This pitch looked significantly harder than the first and I backed off of it for want of more gear. Bring a good selection of small wires and micro cams for this one!
Descend by rappelling the route with two ropes.
