Description 

This route follows the second crack system to the right of the Captain Hook chimney. There is a crux jam move near the start, a 5.9 move 40 feet up, and and easy chimney above. The quality of the climbing is so-so. To descend, walk right to a tree and rappel 160' to the ground.

Actually, going against what the above route description says, this route is pretty damn fun. You get a little bit of everything from stemming to liebacking to face climbing. Stay left of the wide wormhole chimney- either run it out or lean back in to place gear intermittently.
And there is now a 3 bolt rap station for both this climb and for Pass Time to the left of it.

The crux is stellar but I thought the chimney was awkward and strenuous. Decent climb overall.

Just before entering the wide chimney I went left and laybacked the flake on the left, much easier I think but run-out a bit.
