This route is snuggled between Possessed by Elvis and Flake and Bake near the right end of the south Face.

A right-slanting crack above a horizontal yields some awkward climbing, followed by easier fun climbing above.

Recall placing a #3 camalot in the vertical crack at the top, in combo with a #.75 1, and 2 camalot in the horizontal. Seemed ok.

Neat down climb chimney! Takes you right back to the base of the routes.
