Description 

Stick-clip a bolt, then make a difficult move to get on the face just left of the ramp. Move up onto the ramp, heading into a prominent, right-facing corner (this is the route Fritzie's Honor ). Climb up the corner a short way, reach around left to clip another bolt, then reach yet farther left and grab the edge of a flake. Make an off-balance step-around move onto the face, then climb up, diagonalling first left, then back right. NOTE that the gigantic megadeath flake to the left is probably not a wise option here. Continue up and slightly right to a good stance, then work up to a right-facing corner. Go up it and right along the final bit of slab to the anchors.

Location 

Slightly to the right of the approach trail's end, up the right-rising ramp about 25', lies a head-height overhang with a sharply-left-rising ramp on to of it. This route begins 5' left of the sharply-angled nose of this overhang.

Protection 

Standard Adk. rack, and a few quickdraws. Several bolts along the way, and a two-bolt anchor at the top.

There's a direct 5-bolt start to this route, Pudding Snack (5.11c) that's really good.
