The first part of this route climbs up now clean and bulgy cracks past good gear to the obvious ledge. Once on the ledge the route proceeds up the north-facing slab via fun moves past past 2 bolts to a fun mantel move onto another bivy ledge. Once on the ledge, climb past a bolt and then left to a chain anchor.
Correction, this route is to the climber's left of Smear Me a Beer.

The gear is good on this, and all my cams were smaller than a #1 Camalot. A 0.5 Camalot was the biggest piece I used. Not too sustained at all.

The first 15 feet are the best part of this route, but if you try to stay in the crack the entire way including on the upper face in the much smaller/shallower crack, it bumps up the rating +1 maybe. Good gear the whole way.
