This is the furthest route to the left at The Riviera and is to the left of Lease Agreement.
Start by climbing up a chossy, angling crack system to a tree where pro is slim. Be aware of plenty of loose boulders. Then climb up some severely lichen covered steps. Once the hard climbing is over, angle right 30-40 feet to a tree with a rappel anchor. Rap ~90 feet to the bottom.
Some serious gardening and brush work is needed on this route to be even considered for a star. Why I thought this was a good idea to climb, I am still pondering.
Medium cams. Pro for the first 40 feet to the tree is bleak, but the climbing is easy.

This route actually angles left the entire time. It finishes up 180' near the base of The Bihedral and is mostly a face climb. What is described here is a different route.
