Smear and edge your way up passing one or three small gear placements...can be a little run-out. The angle eases off after the first 75 feet or so. Easy climbing leads to a short steep section before finishing up under the "Second Over-hang".
Shares start with Special Edition but angles off to the right following the past of least resistance.
Trad. There are a couple sets of bolts at the top to belay from.

I started this one about 15 feet right of Special, pretty much directly under that funky triangular hole that was the first "good" placement, making it a pretty plumb line. Not really hard but the gear (or lack thereof) made it seem that way. Placed nothing larger than a blue TCU. I agree with Jeff...can be runout unless your really adept at small "tricky" gear.

There are a couple of alternate starts to this route. For the start thats shared with Special Edition, belay at the lone pine on the rock ledge the same as you would for Lucy or Afternoon. The route goes up to the right of those routes, past some strange hidden cracks that can provide fingerlocks. For the right hand start that Paul described, belay over to the right at the right end of the rock ledge. Head up and then left along some small ramp like features to a point where you can step left and mantle onto the ledge where the triangular slot is located. The triangular slot is both a key hold and the pre-crux gear placement for Limited Edition. From the triangular slot, the route goes more or less straight up, past some TCU horizontals, to easier terrain and the double ring anchor at 30 meters or run it all the way to the anchor under Stanndards Crack.
