Description 

"Director's Cut" takes the right line of bolts (after the second bolt) through engaging pockets and edges to a left-angling finish. The route also shares the last bolt with "Alternate Ending".

Descent Beta: The 6th bolt is a fixed draw. This makes cleaning easier (as a directional) and keeps the rope out of the dirty gully to the left when clipped for the final rope-pull.

Location 

Left of "Held Over".

Just uphill/up-river from the start of "Director's Cut". Follow a steep sandy slope, then cut right at a series of rock steps. Follow an easy 4th class slab that cuts right. Continue right to an obvious man-made platform at the base of the wall (or go left and up to "Brief Intermission").
The ledge is the base of two routes with a shared anchor.

Protection 

8 bolts (with 1 fixed draw), Mussys
