Relatively mild start leads up to the short and definite overhung crux passing the second bolt. After gaining the large knob above second bolt, head toward the top on easy ground.


Far left side of the upper crust area, just to the left of sound chaser and shares a 2 bolt anchor with that route.


3 bolts and 2 bolt anchor, 3rd bolt has a rap ring on it to facilitate less rope drag while lowering. A large knob could be slung for extra protection between 2nd and 3rd bolts.
