Description 

This route goes pretty much straight up very high grade Hatcher granite for ~280' through two distinct dihedrals.

P1 (5.10-, AO, ~55m): Scramble up the currently grassy corner/ramp to its pinnacle where you'll find the first high bolt (this corner could be cleaned for gear placements if desired). Follow four bolts from the top of the grass corner/ramp into the lower dihedral system, from which you traverse right across a blank white slab for two bolts (A0 section) to a flake that leads into the lower vertical dihedral. Follow the dihedral up and move left after a mini roof/bulge near the top to a nice ledge with anchor.

P2 (5.10-, ~30m): Move up and right off the anchor ledge to short cracks leading a small ledge at the base of the upper dihedral. There is a bolt a couple moves off this ledge. Climb the dihedral with small gear pulling left over the top to a big ledge. Move right and up from this ledge (with a lot of air underneath your feet). After this flake to short corner-crack section you will follow a couple bolts and gear up featured slab to an anchor on a large ledge.

Location 

Start to the right of large roof system that is right of Rise, just left of Coitus on a nice section of granite that also holds 2 Left Shoes and Sprinklers Saves Lives (it is possible to link into Double D from the anchor of either of these routes, but it's currently runout and a higher grade than Double D direct).

Protection 

2 bolt anchors with rings. Route is setup for rappelling on a single 60m using the anchor for 2 Left Shoes and Sprinklers Save Lives to get to the ground.

P1: 6 bolts, gear to 3" (emphasis on medium sized cams)

P2: 3 bolts, gear to 3" (emphasis on small gear for upper dihedral)
