Description 

Excellent route in a right-facing corner system, with two cruxes.

Location 

Start in a right-facing corner approx 50 feet right of First Day; the base of the cliff is somewhat open there. Follow corner system through two roofs to the top.

Protection 

Adequate. Bolted anchor at top of cliff. Easy walkoff.

Pro is good. You can place solid cams under the roof and after pulling around the roof from a good if slightly awkward stance before scooting up.
