Starts left of a short right facing dihedral. Climbs up a well featured face past three (new) bolts and heads for a shallow crack. A spicy highstep (crux) to gain establishment into the crack is done over a short run out section (15ft up 8ft right of last bolt) that can be marginally protected with a small micronut. Good gear is quickly found in the crack above to a two bolt anchor with rings.

3 out of 5 stars Fun

One of thousands of overlooked routes in Yosemite because of that little R thingy after the grade in the book. The crux can be totally protected with a micro nut which would have been nice to have. Would take the R right out of the rateing. All I had was a #1 peenut which was just barely too big for the solid crack. One stiff move leads to a bomber #1 C4. Felt harder than .10a but not .10d.
