Description 

This route is largely unprotectable, except by top rope. Climb the unprotected low angle slab left of the Walter Funkite overlap and below the steep arching feature. Mount the overlap to its left. Once on the overlap traverse a few steps to the climbers right and proceed up the flake and nice foot holds. Finish on reasonably well featured low angle slab. Move left to top out into the alcove.

Location 

Starts left of the Walter Funkite overlap and right of Baba Wawa.

Protection 

Very little or no meaningful pro can be found on the route and there are no bolts. It is pretty much a top rope or solo route. It is sometimes top roped by the guide services that frequent the area. Requires medium pro to build a TR anchor. There are no bolted top anchors. Note that it will require some exposure to rig a TR anchor on this climb. Also note that the near by anchors in the alcove will not serve as a TR anchor for this route due to the high risk of a pendulum into the slab below in the event of a fall. Those anchors serve as the designated rap anchors for parties climbing the Backside on a single 60. They are not intended to be used for all day rappelling or climbing. They do not protect any climb.
