Same start as Decompression Sickness. At 4th bolt of DS, move L to clip bolt 5 of Bends, then pass more bolts to pull a roof and clip anchor chains. Currently under repair (Chains missing, welded cold shuts on top of ledge).
Lower from anchors.

The route was cool. I agree that it is mostly better than decompression sickness, since you get most of the "interesting" climbing from DS on this climb anyway. However, the roof at the end is very thuggish and difficult. I found I didn't have the strength to campus my way through it at the end of the day and blew the onsight. Perhaps there is a more elegant way to do the roof?
