Description 

Scramble up easy terrain passing a mildly flaring horizontal with OK placements. Better gear can be found way out right but it should be back cleaned once you have reached the 1st bolt to cut down on rope drag.
-Sling bolt with 2' runner and traverse hard left for about 12 feet, with gear in the flakes(also sling long) this is the 5.9 crux. Mantle up and clip 2nd bolt.
-Cruise through the voluptuous 5.8 booty shaped groove to a long section of easy terrain. Pull one last steep crux with a bolt to the two bolt anchor.

Needs two ropes to get down in one rap. Also possible with one rope if you tension traverse down 30 feet and to the right about 50 feet to the "woulda coulda shoulda" anchors at 100' to ground.

Location 

After trail hits the wall walk along the base about 70yards. After the very mossy slabs look for an obvious dirty right facing corner with the first bolt about 25-30 feet up.

Protection 

doubles/triples of .5-.75 sizes are helpful
