I don't know if anyone has done this route previously, but I'd guess that the answer is yes. I couldn't find any beta so I'm adding it to MP. I thought this route was very physical with feet on the right getting thinner and thinner the higher you climb. The little crack deep inside keeps this on the reasonable side of the "hard work" dividing line, though I must confess that I, myself, needed a good number of minutes to rest when I got done.

This route is described by Nathan Scherneck as Chili Dog. (The one on the left side of DQ Wall. There is also a right-side Chili Dog.) Except Nathan is wrong about the location "Above and right of the finish for Leap Year Flake." This begins and ends on the same tier as Leap Year Flake. Per Nathan:

Description
Begins in a gully behind a tree, up and over a boulder, and in to a wide crack. Get established in the right facing wide crack. Offwidth technique (or fists if you have larger hands) will be a benifit [sic] here. Awkward, and in my opinion, harder than the Vogel book's rating.

Location
Above and right of the finish for Leap Year Flake. Look for the right slanting wide crack.

Protection
Thin cams and a couple larger (BD #4 or #5) to protect the wide. Mar 20, 2017
