This climb begins on the Tourist Trap’s midway ledge, 25 feet right of the two bolts found halfway up Nipple Jam. Start in an up-and-left hand crack. This leads 15 feet to a roof (gear to 1 ½ inches). Make one move up the roof to the first bolt (reachy). Three more bolts protect climbing up and generally right to a shallow corner. Move up the corner to a two-bolt anchor, 55 feet from the start of the route.

Gear to 1 ½ inches and four bolts.

The crack section is shorter than described, and the first bolt could probably be stick clipped from the ledge. Crux is just after the bolt.
