Located just right of THE HARD WAY in the middle of the cliff band. Follow 2 bolts past thin face and through the imposing and unlikely roof (bolt) heading out right to a left trending diagonal hand crack. Follow the crack (small hands, fingers) back left and up to ring anchors. Strong fingers! Unlike its neighbor THE HARD WAY, this one was cleaned and bolted The Easy Way - on rappel. Tough Schist listed as 5.11a.

1 out of 5 stars sandbagged if 5.10a, still sandbagged in Tough Schist at 11a

Seems to be a typo on this route listing.

Really did not like the rope management caused by bolts #2 and #3 which causes the leader to cross right through the middle of the rope while ascending the roof.
