Tom Cecil, Nick Sisk, 1990s
Per Tony Barnes' 2006 2ed guide book p. 220, "Climb up Worrel's Thicket about thirty feet until you reach a small ledge on the left with 2 bolts" to find the start of the climb. There is lower ledge with two bolts spaced widely apart (T&T and Don't Think Twice) and a higher ledge about 30' up Worrels with a two-bolt anchor. Hard to tell which one Barnes is describing.
Barnes again: "#1 Climb up to the left-facing corner system and follow it to the end of Kaufman Cardon (130 ft.)" It would seem that Barnes is saying to start from higher ledge with the two-bolt anchor since he says this is one pitch. But many people seem to start lower, near the start to Worrel's and the ledge with the T&T and Don't Think Twice bolts, and break the climb up into two pitches.
Two-bolt rap station at the end of Kaufman Cardon, or scramble up 8 more feet to Lower Broadway Ledge and descend or walk off from there.

We roped up at the base of Worrel's since we were not sure exactly where the climb started. Climbed up Worrel's and found the ledge with two-bolts, and joined up with R and R just above that. Was low on gear and short on rope half-way up the high left-facing corner, so set a belay and broke the climb into two pitches. I led the first one, John G. the second, I believe the crux was on his pitch.
Leaves were peaking in fall colors; the rock was wonderful, the gear good, and the scenery beautiful.
