This route was done ground up, onsite and hand drilled from stances. No falls, no hangs. The crux is at the second bolt. Mostly face climbing. The line was originally climbed using the obvious vertical crack for the first pitch belay but getting there requires some 5th class to get to so an anchor was placed before this to tone it down a bit and to facilitate rapping.
The route is on the "middle tier". Start on the 3rd class slab on the left hand side of the gully to the left of "Blue Collar" and climb for about 80' to first anchor. You can also walk up the gully between the middle tier and the upper tier to a bulge where you'll have to 3rd class to the west on the slab. The Beta Photo has a topo on it.
