Description 

This is the line left of Cakewalk that sort of looks like (and may be!?) a P2 for "Easy as Instant Pudding Pie". In the Handren guide it appears to be close to, if not the same as, the Todd Swain route "Let Them Eat Cake", but whose P1 was rated 5.4.

STARTing at the area at the base of Cakewalk, we walked left left, then down a step or two onto a sandy, gravely ledge to a tree.

P1 - up to B1 (don't get distracted looking at the anchor of "Easy..as..Pie") Two more B's (and possible back-up for B3 with a Green [0.75] Camalot, below on to left) then easier climbing to dbl bolt anchor. Crux is passing B3 (black bolt on black rock, don't miss it!). 5.6+ to 5.7+?

Rap off, or continue up the left-leaning "groove" [ top of P1 of Cakewalk] or up the face to the right (passing two bolts) to either intercept P2 of Cakewalk at the left-facing corner, or move right to the P1 anchor of "A Piece of Cake"
