Pitch 1: Traverse left along narrow ledge above steep wall until left side of buttress. Then climb up to tree ledge along the left side, to the "Cakewalk" belay tree. The route "Retread" comes up on the right side of the buttress and has a bolt and 2 bolt anchor. (5.4, 60').
Pitch 2: Scramble around left of buttress and to ledge above. Continue up right below the overhanging wall and gargoyle, passing a bolt. Climb the corner (15' left of the "Cakewalk" corner) to belay ledge. (5.7, 100')
Pitch 3: Go left and to a dark groove in the dark rock. Climb the slab to trees. (5.5, 45')

Though first pitch is not hard, the gear could be finicky and may not be suited for new leaders.

A nice alternative to the first pitch is to do both pitches of "As Easy as Instant Pudding Pie". Its second pitch merges with this route's first pitch. This way you get a nice, longer and more consistent grade experience.


Same starting location as Cakewalk, at the far left shallow corner of the Cakewalk area.
