This route is actually a variation to the Hangover [Overhang] route. Start by climbing the bolt ladder as for [Hangover Overhang] (on the boulder on the NE side of the Gem lake trail about 2 mins. from the parking lot), but instead of going out the roof "Hangleft". Traverse horizontally under the roof, you'll need to look around as not all of the placements are obvious. When you reach the end of the roof continue up a short head wall, passing a bolt, to the top. This route will probably go clean, if you want to try it take an extra set of Lowe balls and a couple of cam hooks.
There are approx. 6 bolts and one rivet on this climb. Otherwise, take TCUs (or Aliens), the first 3 Lowe balls, 2 LAs (1 short fat, 1 long) 1 KB, hooks including 1 Bat hook. Also you need the following for the anchor- #1, #2, #3, #4 Camalots, 1 yellow TCU, 1 #8 stopper, and some cordelettes to equalize.
