Description 

This climb starts 125' up the cliff on a large ledge.
You get there by first climbing Easier Done than Said to anchor.
From this anchor walk straight right (3rd class) behind pine tree.
Go beyond Midas Touch and clip first low bolt on Banshee.
Move right again 5-7' to good crimps. Move up and slightly left to big pocket(jug). Prepare for exciting crux and head point.
From there following remaining bolts over steeper terrain to bolted anchor shared with Midas Touch. Stay close to the bolt line especially at the top (There may be some remaining loose blocks).

Protection 

The belay for this climb and Midas Touch is rather far left of the climbs. This is to protect the belayer if the climber knocks off something. The route is solid along the bolt line, but there hasn't been much traffic.

8-10 bolts plus 2 bolt anchor.
