Description 

This is a delightfully improbable route. Though it looks like it might be hard and unprotected, it turns out to be quite reasonable.

Just right of the start of Hundred-Foot Stick Clip, climb a steep, varnished flake. Continue up, staying just right of a blunt arete, until you reach the left end of a large roof. After a few moves, you can step left to the bolted belay/rappel station on Hundred-Foot Stick Clip.

Location 

Climb up to the ledges at the start of Coronary Bypass to a short flake just to the right of the dark headwall.

Excellent pitch. Replaced the old webbing on the Hundred Foot Stick Clip anchor; a slightly diagonal one-rope rappel (climber's left) reaches easy downclimbing.
