Description 

One of the better mini routes around: excellent moves.

This is listed in the current guide as a variation to Walter Mitty, but except for the hand crack the climbing is independent of that route.

Follow the hand crack to the overhang, traverse right a bit and move past the overhang. Climb the obvious arete (crux about halfway up) to a large ledge.

Walk off right via the Uberfall Descent.

Location 

On a high, steep face just right of Rhododendron and Laurel. Look for the hand crack that leads to a small overhang.

Protection 

Standard 'Gunks rack with a few extra tiny cams.

A really nice route, with consistent climbing at the grade. Mind your rope management to minimize drag -- slings early, then placements near the arete later rather than further right on the face.

Near the crux there's a loose, palm-sized flake with chalk on it, that you'll probably step on afterwards if you're not careful. Its detached but held on, just a head's up.
