A mostly 5.6 or 7-ish route with one harder move and a bit of that exposed feeling.
The route climbs past 4 bolts on a slab to a sloping ledge between slabs. The crux is getting up onto the next slab. The harder bit is a little overhung and takes some balance to get up.
After an exposed-feeling couple of moves to the sixth bolt it's easy cruising to the anchors.
The route is at the bottom of the Ed and Terry Ridge, to the south (uphill) and west of Red Slab . To get there, go to the right side of Red Slab and then head west a bit. A steep slot will appear on your left. Head up the slot and the base of the route is on your left, just past a small tree.
8 bolts to chain anchors. The belay position is on a steep, slippery slope so we built a belay anchor for comfort in a crack at the base of the climb.

The little overhang between the two slabs is pretty tricky. Felt hard for 5.8. Fun route, though. Worth doing.

The start is neat and leads to a ledge below the steep crux step. Can easily walk around to the right to the upper wall.
