A delightful route to round out the day. Start about 50' left of Crown Royal (150' right of Lazy Buttress) at the base of a large gully system with a beautiful handcrack about a ropelength up. Pitch 1: Head up a large right facing corner to the base of the crack. Two fixed stoppers mark the belay stance. 5.7, 180' Pitch 2: Head up the crack, then exit right, traversing up and left afterwards to a belay stance at a tree in a left-facing corner. 5.8+, 100' Pitch 3: Head left across the slab, then upwards, aiming to the large ledge with a boulder on it about 60' to your left. 5.5, 100' Pitch 4: Finish as per Lazy Buttress up the slot on the left to Lover's Ledge. Descend per Lazy Buttress.

This was a first recorded ascent of this route, although the second pitch has certainly been climbed as evidenced by the fixed gear above and below the crack. Nonetheless, it is a fine route with pleasant climbing and good rock and so I gave it a name, so it wouldnt feel left out!
