This route climbs up the striking arete just to the right of Dresden Corner. You do the same unprotected start as Dresden, plug gear in the horizontal about 20 feet up, and move right to clip the route's only bolt. Make a tenuous and reachy step past the bolt to get established on the arete. Do a few bouldery arete moves to get to a stance where you might want to move onto the right side of the arete. Use delicate slab moves to continue up eventually reaching a cruxy exit section. Hold it together and resist bailing left into the Dresden finish. Use Dresden anchors.
Just right of Dresden Corner and left of Marionette
Cams up to 3". mostly finger to ring lock size placements. Long slings to manage rope drag

Fan-freaking-tastic route. Takes good gear and is super fun.
