This was my favorite of the Cookie Sheet routes I've done so far. It is possibly the longest on the wall, reaching the highest point on the slab over on the right side. The route begins on the far right side of the highest ledge system, just before a drop-off.

The first pitch climbs through some 5.8 friction and then some small corners and features up to the anchor. The second pitch is hard for 20 ft right off the belay and has a tenuous clip at the first bolt. Have your belayer hanging out to the left so you don't fall on their head if you blow it. After that it's more cruising up to another anchor. The 3rd pitch works through some steeper (but still low-angle) bulges on featured rock and then climbs up a final slab to the anchor just below the headwall.

If those moss ledges are still intact I will eat my Chaco!

Hopefully our paths cross again sometime soon!
