Description:

Start as for Pleasant Street and Bombardment. After getting to the ledge traverse down and left until 10-12 feet under a bolt. Make necky moves, get the clip, and proceed past two more bolts. After the third bolt trend right to a short crack and then follow the leafy weakness/gully to a belay. You could also go left to a fourth bolt and finish on 5.11 terrain.

Descent Options:

Finish another route to the top or rap with two ropes from a slung tree 100 feet to climbher's right.

4 out of 5 stars Slab Happy

Excellent sustained elegant climbing for the route's middle third. Do it as one pitch, the old small belay tree is gone and you'll be hard pressed to find an anchor nearby.
