Description 

TOP ROPE ONLY! This is a climb that you can do off of the rappel station between triangle 1 and 2 if you leave a rope and anchor. It is an easier way to climb out of the Upper Tier than other routes. Start on "Undisclosed Location," and work left to the triangle 1 and 2 divide. Turns into a nice flake at the top.

Location 

Start on "Undisclosed Location," and work left to the triangle 1 and 2 divide.... Follow up to the flake.

Protection 

No bolts...top rope off of rappel station with appropriate anchor.

This is a good top rope to exit the upper tier, but I think it is easier than 5.8. It is about 5.7, and there is no way the easiest climbing is 5.8.
