This route located on the flatest portion on the left side of the Iron Face. Climb up a short right facing corner then move right onto a left angling brown streak. Underclinging and liebacking past the first couple of bolts is the crux but the climbing above shuts down many stong climbers. Super unique for the area.
Locate the Iron Face on the Northeast side of the Hornet's Nest. This route is the third bolted route to from the right side of the Iron Face.

No disrespect to Curt, but I disagree with his comment. I found this route to be a touch harder than Ladies in Love, which makes it 12c/d in my book. Great route nonetheless--certainly a must-do.
