Not a bad little route. Good for the end of the day walk back.
Climb the easy face to a large ledge and left-facing flake. Climb the flake to a roof and loose block, then move right and up to a stance (crux). Diagonal further right past a face and up to a large ledge and belay tree.
In the alcove left of the Gerdie block, on a slab 50 feet left of No Picnic and just right of a broken section of cliff, below an orange roof, about 60 feet up slope from the Carriage Road at the high point of the rock slope.

This is a pretty good route for new leaders, just remind them not to place gear behing the giant loose hold...

Not great, not terrible. Not really worth doing. I was working with a new leader and she did a fine job. The traverse under the roof looked daunting from the ground, but, once she got up there, she was fine. The "X" block is a bit offputting.

One of my favorite warm ups, as long as you get there early and there isint a TR on it. 69 was on my tick list ( cuz of the name) for about 2 months before I actually had a chance to get on it. I went off the left facing corner of no picnic then traversed under the sketchy X block before breaking out and instead of moving up thru the stance I traversed right ( to the nose...not sure where the exact route goes) and up to the ledge where you can either move right into pine sapy corner or pull the .5 ? mantle move to the top of the ledge. Came back the next day and lead it again with 2 gear placements.
