Description 

P1: Climb the face on easy holds passing a couple of small trees you can sling for pro. Move up to a steeper face past 2 bolts and a gear placement or two. Some questionable rock but the moves are fun.

P2: Move up and right from P1's top-out on the ledge and begin beneath the obvious open face. Make a few tricky moves down low to get to the first bolt then continue up passing the 2nd bolt, a possible gear placement and the 3rd bolt. You'll top out right where Worrell's Thicket tops out on Lower Broadway Ledge. There's a tree at the ledge you can use for an anchor.

Overall it's a decent route when everything else is busy and you want to quickly get up to Lower Broadway. A little dirty but not unexpectedly so.

Location 

Take the Southeast Corner Trail as for Skyline Traverse and Worrell's Thicket. At the top of the steps look right and up the hill for a small cleared out area about 25' or so uphill from the Worrell's Thicket corner. You'll be on the 'social trail' that runs along the base of the East Face. The first bolt is visible about 35' feet up or so.

Walkoff Lower Broadway or head to other routes.
