This route is right of Festoon. Climb through chicken heads roofs and dikes with interesting and sometimes difficult movement. When the bolts run out, traverse over and clip the weird bolts on festoon, pull the moss lip and walk to the anchor. It's possible to continue to the second anchor on Ruby Shoes, but expect runout climbing.


right of Festoon and slightly downhill


4 stainless bolts, maybe a piece of gear or two, small.
