Description 

A bit harder and with more variety than Grey Face.
Get up onto the top of the low nose (crux, awkward) - (of course without using the Grey Face holds). Then straight up to right-facing corner (which is just right of Grey Face upper bolts) with some interesting moves.
. (optional extra: Continue to top of high block to the right above the two-bolt anchor for Grey Face - ? not protected ?)

Location 

At the round-ish "nose" about eight feet high and about three feet wide, with a nicely positioned inch-wide crack midway up its right side.
Just right of Grey Face start (which has shallow dihedral up to first bolt). Just left of the thin corner-crack which is left below the upper-half not-so-thin flake/crack of the Cornflake Crack route.

Protection 

No bolts on the route. Two-bolt anchor for Grey Face near top is to the left of this route (and below the high block at top of this), so likely needs Trad directional to get a top-rope over this route -- or a separate Trad anchor to set up top-rope protection for the optional move to the high top block.
