Description 

From the bolts atop Frosted Flake, head directly up to the bolt on the face above. Step right from the bolt and move up to bulging rock and good gear. Traverse left into the overhang and more good gear. Pull the overhang and continue straight up. Moving directly up from the bolt into the overhang would probably make this PG/PG13.

Thanks Seth and Justin for replacing the old Leeper. Quality 5.9 route.

Location 

Start from the bolts atop Frosted Flake or after P1 of Dirty Old Man. Ends on the Summit Ledge. Rap off.

Protection 

One bolt. Two-bolt anchor at the top.

When we did the original route we took it right straight up the middle - there was an RP placement just under the overlap that is now gone and there is good gear after you pull the overlap or very small roof. It was spicy then and much more so now done as we put it up. Thanks to the guides who replaced the old Leeper bolt and hanger we used back then (they did so at my request). Angling either left or right towards the corners is Not the original route. Another bolt just before the overlap would make this a popular route I believe.
