Step off the deck to a series of dikes/ledges that lead off left in the direction of the chickenheads. Move up the chickenheads clipping three bolts then step right and clip the last bolt. The crux is the last move.


Thirty feet left of Eyes That Lie. Look for a vertical dike with some shallow chickenheads.


Four bolts. Take some medium cams for the belay.

This route appears to have been retro-bolted as of Aug 2017. The original single 1/4" bolt near the top has been replaced with a new 3/8" and three more new bolts added below. It is no longer an "R/X" route. I could not see if bolted anchors were added at the belay making it a sport route.
