Route led groundup (duh!) by Terry Andrews (1st pitch) and Jimmy Forester (2nd pitch)., Thanksgiving 2004. Route is an independent line that stays to the right of Fusons Folly the whole way. From directly below the initial crack of Fuson Folly (where the pin is), move right about 10 feet and then climb up to an easy face to a good crack for pro. Traverse out right on the arete (one 5.9 move) and then up to a rotten flake/horn (good pro in crack behind horn) Then head up face for about 40 to 50 feet (runout 5.8) to beneath a bulge where you can slam in a #1 and 0.75!!! We belayed here. 2nd pitch went straight up over the bulge on positive holds (5.9) to a good hand crack that leans right. Squirm right and then up and over small bulge and then up another 40 foot face (runout 5.7). Kinda spicy but not too bad!!

5 out of 5 stars first ascent with jimmy

i wasn't feeling real confident so we did this instead of the harder stuff. i loved it. i didn't have any slings or i could have made the top without the hanging belay...still fun...jimmy kind of forced the 2nd pitch over the roof when there was a much easier part just 3 or 4 feet to the left.
