A Direct Alternate start (80’) bypassed the original three traversing pitches before the vertical pitches to the top. Start in the gully below the Potato Chip Flake, the Direct alternate has seven bolts and one fixed pin. Bring two double shoulder-length slings a #1 red Camalot for exiting the small roof to the left and a #.5 purple Camalot to protect the finishing moves to the ledge. The bottom First Lead goes at 5.7, middled 5.9 (C1), top out to the ledge 5.6.
