Description 

It is hard to believe a route of this vintage and quality has eluded the database until now. Expect old-school on this route: hardware, bolt-spacing, and grade, although 11d seems right on. This is almost as good as Lats.

Employ right heel-hooking and/or high-stepping to gain the crucial second bolt. Once clipped, the potential for a big fall exists, but you will not hit the ground. Reload the guns at the huge, right-facing flake about mid-pitch. Traverse right and then up, sequentially, on sharp pockets to a big hole followed by a bigger jug. Take a deep breath, and clip a bolt. Cruise to the anchor.

Location 

Walking west along the trail toward the far right margin of the Far Side Wall, look for a partially hidden and slightly overhanging wall. Take a faint trail uphill toward this wall, then down into a hole where begins the route, and its neighbor to the right, Like a Horse.

If you reach the leaning block of Abracadabra, you've gone too far.

Protection 

8 bolts plus a two-shut anchor.

Awesome route. Definite groundfall potential getting to second bolt.
