Starts from the Cloud 9 Ledge (to the right of "Heaven's Ledge"). To access it, start climbing "Stairway to Heaven." After the 2nd bolt, traverse up and right to another bolt. After that, gear protects to the ledge and belay anchor. (Same as pitch 1 of "A Love Supreme.") (Actual Route): From the Cloud 9 Ledge belay anchor, traverse right & around the corner to a ledge. The crux is just above the ledge at the start of the climb. Head up the face, following the bolt line. Protect runouts with gear. At the top of the wall, move left about 20 feet to the "A Love Supreme" anchor. Two rappels.

Descent Options:

Two rappels with a 60m rope.

4 out of 5 stars Fun adventure for Ozone!

A bit of an "adventure" for Ozone with the 2 pitches/2 rappels, etc. Fun. Crux seemed a bit tougher than 5.8 (5.8+/5.9- ?)
