Description 

Start with some easy moves and lean way left to clip the first bolt. Head up using face holds and the crack in dihedral clipping the second and third bolts. Here the crack dies out and things get a little harder. Clip the fourth bolt and figure out how to get into a stem since most of the holds are gone. Get past this crux and make easier moves to the anchors.

Bolts are in weird location, guess the first ascentionist's didn't want to place them to close to the crack. It would probably be a better line to take trad gear for the first 3 bolts. Since the best and far easier line at the start is in the dihedral at the bottom.


Location 

The other obvious dihedral that isn't Green Eggs and Ham. Just left of Quickdraw McGraw, shares the first 3 bolts with Lucky Boy.

Be careful passing the fourth bolt, since the 3rd and 4th bolts are on different sides of the dihedral it is easy to get the rope behind you.
