This route is located about 10 feet right of the left side of the Case Face. Climb a steep section past a bolt (5.7 crux) into a crux. Continue up easier ground following this left-trending crack. Belay at the top of the crack wherever possible. This is a fun, easy trad lead.
Descent:A slightly nerve-wracking downclimb is possible. From the belay, traverse left across a slab (scary) to a corner, then downclimb a slab towards the base of the climb. It also appears that some people rap from a small bush on the slab (also looks a little scary). It is also possible to climb an easy 5th class pitch up and then traverse right under the roof to the bolted anchors atop Head Case and rap from here.

Decent route with crux down low right after clipping the one bolt; once you get into the crack its super mellow and plenty of gear places. Note; IF traversing to Head Case anchors it is a ways with sporadic gear; you can also just finish up the crack toward a tree/shrub with some rappel slings. Have fun!

If heading right for the bolts there's a decent sling around a horn just before pulling the overlap - helped my head a lot - it's a looong runout!
