This is an easy beginner lead on the low-angle slab left of the Inner Space Arch, up high on the West Face of Turret Dome. The setting is spectacular.
This is the farthest left of all routes at Turret Dome. It ascends the low-angle slab left of the big arch up high (above and left of Guide's Route and other harder routes on the West face).
9 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

THIS IS BAD BETA! Most Toppest is a 5.7, under the arch, on the left side. This climb is "The Welcoming 5.4". As listed in Ben Schmitt's Eleven Miles To Freedom. 9 bolts ~30 feet left of the arch.
FA: Bill Schmausser and Britt Anderson, 2005.

Thanks, Tyson. The route descriptions and names here were based on info from the "Rock Climbing Colorado" Falcon guidebook by Stuart Green. I have brought up the discrepancies with Ben Schmitt, and it does sound like his new guidebook is likely to be correct on these details, as he reviewed the info for these routes with Bill Schmausser, part of the FA party. Updating route details accordingly.
