At the far right side of the Basement, after going up a rock step, locate a slab of darker stone that faces directly north. It is just to the right of Rodeo Clown and a few obscure sport routes, and left of the Old Man Wall. It is pretty much the only route in the entire basement that isn't vertical or overhanging. Getting off the ground can be the crux for beginning leaders. Once established, try to stay on the face, as the going is still 5.7ish, with maybe one 5.8+ move. The crack to the right is full of loose chunks, not recommended. Most of the route is quite easy. If you want some extra exposure, try to stay to the left - on the arete. Watch your head at the topout!
