This route is in a water streak on the west-facing cliff directly
above and several hundred feet farther back (northeast) from If We Bolt It They Will Come (route number 711 in the 2007 guidebook). The route is visible from the West Side parking lot.

Approach as for the Crowley Towers and the Balconies Bumps; then, from the saddle between these formations, move west-southwest (toward parking, although the actual parking lot isn't visible from this saddle). Pass through a prominent notch between small ridges, down to the base of the route.

Six bolts lead up and then up and slightly right to a two bolt anchor 95 feet above the ground.

For a photo-topo that shows this route and other new/newly discovered climbs nearby, click on this link (which connects to the Mudn'Crud Pinnacles discussion forum - scroll to route number 709.5 and the link at the bottom of that route; I couldn't figure out how to post the photo-topo here):

By way of further information, half the bolts on this route were placed by first ascentionist Laura Dawson who is the "cover girl" of the 2007 guidebook.
