Description 

Upon entering the upper tier scramble up on to the boulders to your left and eventually to the top of the boulder that creates the "tunnel". Start in corner to the right of the "Batman" arete. Climb right onto the face and continue up and right. After pulling the corner at top of the face climbing gets really dirty. Lichen covers the rest of the climb. Continue straight up on horizontals and belay from gear at top. Decend via Walk the Plank anchors to the left of the belay. Climb seemed weak for grade.

Location 

Actual first route in Upper Tier but some scrambling needs to be done to reach the bottom of route. If you immediately turn 180 degrees after passing through tunnel you will be looking at the face of Welcome Home.

Protection 

medium cams with doubles between 2 and 3 for belay.
