Description 

This flow can be run diagonally from lower right to upper left at WI2, or tackled directly at WI3+.
This isn't a classic, but it is worth running over to if you're in the Measles Wall area. TR set-up is easy. The middle of this flow is quite steep and thin; might warrant WI4-.

Location 

Approach for TR'ing is different than approach for leading.
To reach the bottom of the route:
walk the BAW path past the Upper Measles Wall to the height of land. Just past this, take the first passable gully on the right, heading downhill, descending about 80', then walk east around a bend to spot the flow.
To reach the top for TR'ing or to rappel down:
Walk farther east along the BAW path. On the right, look for a 20' wide gap between a largish white birch and a spruce, and pass through it, slanting down- and eastward to reach the top near the middle of the flow.
Descent is via rappel or head over to the BAW path.

Protection 

screws.
There are good trees at the top for TR set-up/belay anchors.
