Description

This is a pretty great, easy 5.10 that gets shade for most of the day. Some vegetation on the route, but it doesn't get in the way.  Head up some intermittent cracks with lots of face holds past a couple of small trees over a distinct tan colored slight bulge (crux), following more intermittent cracks and good face moves, trending just ever so slightly left. Pass a flake system near the top to easy ground to the finish. Ends on a huge ledge, same as Ithaca Connection, Skyline chimney, and Crystal Caper. Gear is mostly straightforward.

Descent: Rappel from chains with TWO ROPES, finish Skyline, or make an easy, but somewhat loose traverse over to the base of P3 of Never on Sunday (red tower), and finish this route (great linkup).

Location

Starts about 5' left of Ithaca Connection, just down and left from the high scrambling point along the base of the North face.

Protection

Doubles from 0.3 to 2" and a full set of stoppers. Extra finger sized gear and micro cams are good to have. Belay options galore: Sling a massive boulder, clip into some chains, or build a gear anchor.
