The center of three vertical cracks on the right end of hogsback, just to the left of Harvey's Wallbangers, Right. Mostly 5.4 moves with a short 5.6 fingers crux. At the top, climb a 5.7 mantel (fun!) or make an easy face traverse right (set a directional for your second, or make him/her do the mantel). Can be done in 2 or 3 pitches, with several good belay options.

Good route. The start entails a fairly exposed scramble - pass deception and look for the obvious large tree up and to the right. That's the start for Harvey's right, and a short traverse 20' left is the center start.
Some belay options but nicest spot seemed to be an obvious ledge with a hight piton. Just below that are some sketchy loose blocks on the right, and then at the belay there's a center block in the crack that entices you to sling or place pro next to, but it's also quite loose. A #3 or #4 can go next to the piton.
Bria led the first pitch of this - her 2nd lead ever. She did the first pitch super long (full 60m) and had a semi-decent belay stance just under the first roof. I think belaying lower down near the piton would have been easier, but this worked. The 2nd pitch was confusing on which way the "official" route goes, but wandering up over some of the small roofs, on some dikes, some traverses, and a mantel all made for good fun. A couple small trees up top to belay from (don't rely on just the trees)
