At the "tooth flake", head left along a left-rising crack. Use it and a crack to the right to gain height, then move up and right to a horizontal crack. Continue up and left along another crack/seam; where it ends make a hard move (crux) to reach a crack that ends on the underside of an overhang. Follow this crack up left to a small pillar of rock, and climb its right side to join the "original" finish of Parallel Passage, ending at fixed anchors.
Good pro is available but puckerishly far below the crux. The fall appears clean.


Same start as Parallel Passage; near the right end of the Patio Ledge; this route follows the left-rising crack that diverges from the "tooth flake".


Small to medium cams, full set of stoppers, some brass nuts. Fixed anchors at top.
