A long varied pitch that is great when you want a little more after doing one of the adjacent longer routes.

P1) Follow lieback cracks diagonally up right to a bulbous arete. Make crux moves onto the arete then continue up slab and edging passing a lowering station to the anchors. There appears to be an extension but I don't know anything about it.

Rap to the intermediate anchors then to the ground with a 60.


Just right of the start of Ewephoria. Scramble up to an alcove behind a bush below the first bolt.


16 bolts

There are two that start from that ledge at the Ewephoria base.. or at least one that starts then splits into two rather quickly.

Just to confirm (and for folks heading up this way) this one [posted above] is the right one of the two, correct? If i remember correctly, the left one ends p1 just left of the crack exit, wanders around left of the buldge then follows a right-leaning crack up a ways, around a corner, through some weirdness and anchors just right of a leafy ledge. Then one more pitch up to the upper grand ledge.

I want to say the left one went at about a 9.

Actually there are three and this is the left one. The right one starts in the right facing dihedral immediately to the right then at the third bolt divides into two routes, Ranch Hands and Bleeding Hearts.
