This obscure route climbs the narrow face/arete between Psycho Groove and I'm So Embarrassed For You and then cuts left at a headwall to join Curtain Call (5.6) for it's finish. The lack of protection in the lower (crux) section will make this a toprope for most. One star out of five.

No real protection until you're on easy ground. Best to do this as a TR.
