Description 

Haven't met anyone that knows this route, let alone someone that has climbed it. It's a gem with some fun/unique moves. Noting that there's a sticker bush growing in the first pitch chimney suggests the lack of traffic.

P1 has a steep section just before a great tunnel-through behind the distinct detached flake. This is the crux and I'm not sure is a part of the 5.8 rating. Belay shortly after flake. P2 starts with a tight squeeze or some nimble face traversing/stemming to avoid the squeeze - PG gear here.

Location 

One crack system or ~40' uphill from the Sequel. If you top out in 3-4 pitches you can hike off climber's left. It looks like if you stop after 2 pitches you can possibly rappel Remain in the Light

Protection 

Single to #6 BD worked well for me.
