Description 

Follow a broken crack system to a ramp - traverse up and under the right-facing headwall on good holds. Where the headwall runs out, step out left and fire up a short, steep section finishing with a short, wide crack (#3 BD cam). Pull the bulge and angle right to a bolted anchor.

This is super enjoyable 5.7 climbing - if you start farming lichen, you are probably off route.

Location 

As of August 2013, this is the 2nd route on the Hemingway Wall (see beta photo). Note this is listed as the 1st route in the Fixed Pin guide.

Protection 

Standard rack to #3 BD cam, 2 bolt anchor (rap bolts), 2-ropes to rappel.

Edited per Kirk Miller as of Oct. 25, 2016: now it is equipped with a bolted midway belay/rappel station. The top anchor was upgraded with rappel rings.
Midway fixed anchors were added with the approval of first ascensionist, Mike Morin.

All hardware courtesy of ASCA. Thanks, Kirk!

The gear is fine at the harder bits and some what sparse through the whole of the middle section which is quite a bit easier.
