Starting at the same ledge and bolt anchor as Boots On The Ground, climb up and left to follow the overhanging seam. Great movement and quality rock are the features here. After 5 bolts, it gains a ledge and continues straight up on the finish of Lucky Stars. Bring a stiff quick draw because the bolt off the ledge for Lucky Stars (placed by the first ascent of that route) was placed unusually high for the average sized person. That bolt is the 6th bolt of Bait and Switch. Climb up the blunt arete (classic) past 2 more bolts to the bolt anchors at the summit (shared anchors with Boots On The Ground).
