Description

Previous guidebooks have put this in the Height-of-Land section, but the route is actually LEFT of "Yak Between Worlds" (which starts at the actual highest point of the Height-of-Land.)

I've been as far as the base of the solution pockets to confirm the route, but climbing them looked to be quite awkward. The FA assigned "5.3" but take that with a grain of salt.

Approach- See approach to "Yak" and/or "Road to Lhasa".

P1- From the actual highest point of land, descend 20-30 feet (steep ground!) and traverse out left onto the (mossy) slab. Climb up to where the slab steepens and surmount the steep section on some large (4-5 inch) solution pockets. These are about mid-way between the corner of "Yak" and the flakes of "What's Up Yankee?". From there "continue on the slab above with no protection". 200 ft 5.3??

Protection

None for the first 100+ feet. (Then you reach the prominent 8-12" overlap.) The solution pockets are too shallow to accept cams.
