Photos

A good route established by Scott Bye. never done in part because of lack of anchor. Adding an anchor by anyone would be fine and allow this route to be done more frequently.
Start is a short scramble up and left of Happy Face. Deceivingly steep powerful start to pull into right facing corner crack that pinches down near the top. 2 pins plus gear Dec 28, 2017
