Description 

The Cater Guide may have the rating for Double Feature (route to the left) mixed up with this route. Guide gives, 5.11 b/c, stiff for the grade. Climb up the face making slab moves on shallow sloping horizontals to reach the 2nd bolt. Easy climbing will gain a flake system which you will follow to it's end. From here, head a bit left and then move back right once you gain a stance (crux). Follow the face straight up to reach the shuts. Use the lack of lichen as your guide to where the route should go.

Location 

This route starts about 15 ft to the left of the Honeymooner's Ladders.

Protection 

8 bolts, shuts.

So good I climbed it twice. The crux is very unique; slabby and kind of powerful. Exciting climbing to the anchors too. 4 stars. Plus, your friend can take sweet photos of you cranking from the ladders.

Truly fantastic route if you enjoy slab. I got spit off a few times up top, there are some pretty key holds which aren't obvious at the first few glances. Insecure but in the best way, and clean falls to boot.
