Description 

From the 2 bolt chain anchor, scooch out across the flake traverse at the start of the Nostrum. Go left past a bolt, just below the start of the Nostrum's bolt ladder and climb out to an arete. Step up to and continue across a horizontal break to a technical, left-facing corner. Roll on up and over to an anchor on the slab. Take care when weaving the the rope to minimize drag and exposure to abrasion.

Location 

This route starts from the top of the first pitch of the Butterfield route. Same as the Nostrum. The first pitch of the Butterfield route starts from the left side of the same alcove as Beastie Boys.

Protection 

There is a fixed pin at the start of the Nostrum and one bolt where the Pill Billy branches left. Small to 2" cams are handy. 2 bolt anchor.
