Lower Pond area. After crossing the road, hike immediately way up the hill to the west. This route is just left of Youth is Beauty. While putting up this route there were two fatal accidents on route 60, one west of Superior and one in the canyon at the Pond parking area. Work your way left and up. The technical crux can be avoided by using the crack on the left. It's still interesting though!
