This line is not specifically described in any previous guide, but is apparently one of those "easier routes [that] are to the left of the... Big Enchilada" mentioned by Beverly (2006:202-203).
A blocky start leads to a right-facing dihedral with a crack that pinches out. Surmount another block, and follow the next right-facing dihedral to the top.


Ascends a dihedral system about 15 feet left of the Big Enchilada roof, at the left (southern) end of the east face of the Big Enchilada cliff. Walk-off down the standard approach gully.


Trad rack of single nuts and cams to #3BD will work. Gear anchor on top (several junipers - and a dead pinon- are set back from the edge, too). Easy to set a TR.
