Begin at the base of a slab apron, just right of Catwalk and "Descent Route". Climb the chimney left of the apron, with flakes in it, until able to exit right onto the slab at a small dike. Then set sail up left on the 5.8 face, wandering for the easiest route and best protection. Stay left at the top to a nice belay which takes hand and finger sized pieces. Head north-ish to rappel from the chains above the second pitch of Fred Rasmussen.


Park at the waterpump. This is between #3 and #4 in the John Ross photo on the Upper Breadloaves East page. It is just left of where Bingham describes "The Egyptian."


Yellow Metolius - #3 or 4 C4. Extra hand and finger pieces for the belay. Small nuts may give you something to fiddle with for a while. Probably not for the 5.8 leader.
