Description 

This route climbs the slabby face and huge overlap between Time Traveler (originally called Ursa Minor) and Across the Universe.

P1: Climb the face to a bolt, then layback up an obvious right facing flake to a belay anchor below the large overlap (5.7; 130 feet; same P1 as Time Traveler/Ursa Minor and done before that route was established).

P2: Climb straight up over the center of the huge overlap (5.8 R) between Time Traveler/Ursa Minor and Across the Universe to easier climbing on the slab above. Go to to a flake, then diagonal right to a pocket and a bolt. Belay above at a bolted anchor (5.8 R; 165 feet).

P3: Climb straight up the easy face above to an obvious corner (piton anchor placed at the base of the corner placed on the FA).

P4: Climb the corner (a bit rotten) then up and left to the tree ledge (5.5)
