Description 

06/2017 UPDATE: Unfortunately this route has been found to have very unstable rock. Hints of what could happen are laying all around the base of the wall. The anchor bolts have been chopped.

Old route description:
Identify an obvious clean dihedral below a roof on the far right of the Basement, after hopping up into the boulder-strewn area. The anchor is located some 20 feet above the roof. Traverse through the low overhang and into the dihedral, then jam up into the roof, out the corner, and pull the crux which is getting up into the broken ledges above. Cruise from here to the anchor.

Location 

Far right side of Basement, past all the sport routes on the main wall. Obvious short dihedral/roof.
