The very obvious right slanting ramp at the right hand end of the tree covered ledge. If you can't find it, just follow the crowds. P1. Follow the corner and the face on the right to an exposed belay stance at pins. P2. Climb the flaring chimney above (crux)and continue up to a belay at a good ledge with trees. You can combine pitches one and two. P3. One hard move to grab a tree, then waltz up the remainder of the ramp to the trees. P4. You can walk off around to the left from here, or take any number of easy variations that will deposit you at the fence of the tourist outlook, to the great excitement of the vacationing gumbies who drove their SUVs up the auto road.
Pitches 1, 2 & 3 can be combined w/ a 60m rope.

I started this route on Black lung and when I got to the top of the third pitch of this route I was thinking for sure that it had to be more then a 5.5. I would still attest to it being more of a 5.7 with the way that the corner is faced and the ramp is smoothed from many feet on it. Over all great route though and all kinds of fun. Would happily do it again and again and again!
