There are 2 ways to start this: one way is to do the direct start which is a low angle offwidth. The better way is to do a right-angling splitter finger crack. Either way, you end up in a squeeze chimney that narrows down into a more difficult offwidth crux. This is a good route to prepare yourself for the more difficult OW routes in the area.
To toprope this one, you can walk around the back
Walk THROUGH the "Sleep" cave, and at the end of the cave, climb up an easy 4th Class chimney, go all the way back into the cave, and then at the end of the cave, there is a room at the end containing this climb. We call this area "The Cooler", since it stays nice and cool in the summer.
