This route gets a mixed review...... the first part of the first pitch is dirty and unaesthetic but the ribbed corner (crux) on the upper portion is worth the dirt! The second pitch is a really fun slab. Start left of "Erica's Arete" on a grovely bulge, head up to a dirty ledge, head right up a nice corner and up to the 1st belay. From there, cruise up the slab to a fun roof. Either rap of rings at the top, or finish at the guard rail as a final route for the day. This line was a long time in the making as that a MASSIVE death block needed to be trundled off the top before it was deemed safe to bolt. It took 3 "after work" sessions, using pry bars and car jacks to get it off...... but DAMM what a splash!!!

or run it as one tall pitch, clipping one of the belay
