Description 

This is the initial exploratory route on this slab, done way back in the day. Plans to clean up and revive it have yet to be completed, though some work has been done.
Make a tricky move getting off the ground and into a low-angle scoop. Move up and slightly right to a vertical crack, climb it to its end, move up and right to a stance (your feet on a horizontal crack). The original ascent made a scary foot traverse using a seam line (no pro) to another vertical crack 20' left; the latest uses friable edges and plates to go up diagonally left to easy friction. A direct run straight up would be harder.

Location 

Begin at the high ledge left of the gully that lies left of the Main Slab. Look for a vertical dirt line; begin on the slab just a few feet left of this.

Protection 

A few small to medium cams. There are bolt holes en route, but no bolts. The crucial moves are so-so protected (crack below your feet), but there is a long run-out afterward.
Descent requires rappel off trees to climber's left.
