Description 

This route climbs to the right of Time Traveler. The easiest way to start is to rap 100 feet to a ledge below the anchors at the bottom of T.T. A 200 foot rope will just make it - knot the ends of the rope. Head up the slab and follow the left bolt line (2 bolts) to a corner system found above. Jam this crack until it is possible to pull up onto the slab on the left. Follow more bolts (2-3) through the thin slab until you reach the bolt anchor of T.T.

Protection 

Light rack to #1 Camalot.

I thought this was "Be Here Now" in line with the whole Zen Garden Wall motif??

This line has it all the low section is a nifty small roof problem, the middle a very friendly 5.7 hand crack and the top 5.8 slab. My favorite line on this section of rock.

Whoops... I knew I screwed something up. I submitted a request to change the name. Thanks for the feedback.

Actually Guy, one can rap from the two bolt anchor down to the ledge with another set of two bolt anchors with a 60M rope. Be careful! With a 60M, you only have about four feet on either end when you rap down and stand on the ledge. It's quicker than scrambling down to the tree and then rapping from there down to the base of the routes in this area.

The top two bolts on this climb are a bit of a squeeze job, and it seemed to us if you climb straight up between them using no "illegal holds" it is harder than 5.8 (can you use the corner to the right, for example?). This section seemed significantly harder than anything on Time Traveler. On the other hand, if you move right a few feet the climbing is trivial, or left a few feet and you are on Shape Shifters.

I agree with George that if the large features left and right of bolted slab on upper portion are not used, this section had moves equal in difficulty and quality to Night Grooves. Also the lower section is best done straight up (Knowoneness bolt line) on great holds rather than stepping left at the roof.
