Pretty good climbing, but dirty. Located on a steep wall to the left of the Overhand Bypass approach. The climb can be identified by a semi-detached column of rock, and the route follows the crack on the left side of this column.

After passing the Bridalveil Parking area, there is a super long pullout on the left side of the road. Park down towards the end of it, cross the street at a crosswalk, and follow a major trail to where it intersects the Valley Floor Loop trail. Cross the loop trail and scramble up talus towards the base of the wall. Then skirt a bit right and continue up some devious 4th class to gain a ledge system which is followed back to the left. We roped up below and to the right of the climb, but it's also possible to scramble up to a higher ledge (which Spectacle begins off of) and rope up there.

From the highest ledge with a tree, climb up a flake to the right, then clip a bolt and step left to switch cracks. Climb up the left side of the column, which is a bit of a flare with fingerjams in the back. This leads to a small sloping shelf. Make some tricky lieback and stemming moves up the thin crack to gain larger features which lead to a bolted anchor out left. This anchor is shared with the bolted face to the left (Spectacle 5.11d). A 70m rope is ideal.
