Description 

Easy face climbing up plates (5.2) for about 25 feet, then another 40 feet of low angle slab (5.3 at first, then continually easier)

Location 

This route starts just left of the wide crack that is 12 feet left of the bolts on Bittersweet Feet. Climb along the right side of the face on good plates. Sling the largest 2 plates and transition to slab. Continue up until it is easy to transition over to the slab about 15 feet directly above the anchor for Bittersweet Feet. Scramble down to the anchor for Bittersweet Feet. There is a knob/horn on the right side of the crack that works well as a directional for the rope (at the same height as the anchor). This line has probably been free soloed in the past, so I am not claiming it as a FA. It is easy and fun.

Protection 

sling plates about 25 feet up
