Description 

Climb the yellow dihedral downhill of Doody Direct. Move left into the short chimney and continue to traverse left until you hit the bush and the bottom of the choss gulley. Straddle half way up and link up with the Doody Direct. Find the path of least resistance as you move to the ledge below the summit. There is a pin along the way and a good horizontal crack to back it up. Find some gear at the ledge and gain the summit.

Location 

Start in the dihedral on the southwest face of the Gnomon.

Protection 

Standard rack with some longer slings to decrease rope drag.
