Start and finish as for Cookie Mix but right before the upper shallow dihedral traverse right along the diagonal break to a tricky boulder sequence and tackle the engaging face and flaring vertical seam thru 2 fixed chains before rejoining the finish on Cookie Mix.

Same as for Cookie mix except for the 2 fixed chains for the variation.

For the record, according to Scott Frye (who bolted the route) this route is called "just add water" the next route to the right is "Slim Pickens" (commonly referred to as "Pot Licker".
