Description 

This is a fun route that follows a hand crack in a right arching crack flake then joins an obvious dihedral about halfway up the route. The crux is found just after joining the crack in the dihedral. once past the crux, the route slabs out and is an easy walk for the last 15 feet to the anchors.

Location 

This route is maybe 100 feet to the right of Scenic Byway and is located 10 feet to the right of Lonesome Scenery.

Protection 

Double set of camalots from 1 to 3, you might find a place for a 4 if you look.

There is a more strenuous start to the route in the corner just right of the standard start. Stemming and finger locks make it somewhere around 5.10ish.
