Description 

Start in the Chimney work your up way up past this section, then transfer out onto the ledge system. Once you pass the ledges, you will be left to a large runout of simple slab. Be sure you are ready to commit to the slab. As you climb the top rope drag becomes a problem as well as communication. Recommend radios if you have em. ***Didn't find any information on this route in the guidebook or online, so if anyone knows the name of the route, or the FA just contact me to update it.***


Location 

This route is located to the right of Stem Corner. you will find the beginning blocked a bit by an ivy bush. Move past it and you will have a nice place to start and belay.

Getting down can be rapped off the bolts for the Wick, or find a place to downclimb.


Protection 

Protect the start by tying the rock above the chimney with a sling. Then up further with a #6 Cam. Near the top of the ledge I used a nut. Then Climbed the committing runout slab, then placed two cams and used three rocks for the top rop setup for the others to enjoy this route.
