If anyone has more info on this route (name, FA, grade, etc.) please enlighten me in the comments! I think the second pitch is the same as Black Tie Affair, but there's not much description there.

This line follows the left side of the Train Tunnel Wall. Start just around the corner from the B Ramp before the trail drops away to the Pit.

Pitch 1: Start up the short slab section and head up, angling slightly right as you go. Follow the weaknesses until you hit the ledge with the 2 bolt anchor atop the first pitch of Black Tie Affair. ~80 ft, ~5.8

Pitch 2: Figure out a way up or around the smooth face to surmount the roof (crux), then climb the blocky face toward the big swath of bird shit. Keep angling up and right as the difficulty eases. After pulling onto a big ledge, one last short vertical face guards the finish. Gear anchor. ~120 ft, 5.9+

Walk off or find the standard rappel routes.


Far left side of the Train Tunnel Wall. Approach as for the ABC Ramps and head as far right as you can go before dropping into the Pit.


Standard rack, 0.2 to 3 C4s with some double in the mid-size and a rack of nuts, lots of slings to manage rope drag.
