Head up the first pitch of Old School: Start from a rough, natural belay ledge and follow the black-painted bolts up and right. Surmount a bulge or two and get to a foot-wide ledge.
This route is too long to rappel or lower with a 70m rope. Use an 80m (as did the FA), or trail a rope. Another likely safe way to get down (although I didn't try it) is to have a follower come up the route, and then rappel to the first pitch anchors of Old School (you'll see the Metolius rap anchors on the way up) and from those anchors to the ground.
Located at the east (downhill) side of the buttress that forms the right side of the upper part of the gully containing Visionary Wall. Approach by either walking up the left side of the Visionary Wall gully near the left wall and then cutting across the gully, or continue along the stream bed and scramble up the next gully to the north.
16 bolts, single-ring anchors.
