Description 

This is basically just an alternate start to Grand Funk Railroad or can be done as a single pitch route.
The route starts down and to the right of Grand Funk Railroad and Taken for Granite. It is really easy to see since it just starts where the "tracks" from Grand Funk intersect the ground. Follow the left angling dikes up towards the first bolt on Taken for Granite. There is a small flake that I was able to stick a #1 BD C3 into before the bolt. Don't expect much else. From the bolt, head up towards the second bolt of Grand Funk and then on to the first pitch belay for Grand Funk. The section between the two bolts is a bit thin and the rock is polished.

I didn't really have any troubles but I was very cautious and tried not to rely on my shoes. It would have been considerably easier in cooler weather. I only gave it a PG13 because the rock was too hot for good traction.

Location 

Just downhill from Grand Funk Railroad and Taken For Granite.

Protection 

Two bolts, minimal additional pro.
