Topo drawn by Pat Kingsbury

Description 

P1: Start on arete until it's possible to gain the left facing corner above. A bolt protects the traverse to the belay.(5.8)

P2: Follow the face above through 3 roofs/bulges. The climbing gets progressively harder toward the top.(5.11c)

Location 

Located on the north face of the 2nd tier of the Waltz. Start on the grassy ledge about fifty feet right of Dirtburper.

Protection 

P1 takes slcds through 2"-3" and a bolt at the end. P2 is mostly bolts but .4 - .75 camalots or equivalent helps

I wouldn't rank this as one of my favorites, but lots of folks like it. Nice and shady on hot summer days.

It seemed like, starting about where Pat is in the pitch 2 photo, I kept fighting to stay right with the bolts as the natural line seemed to venture into the dihedral/chimney feature.
