Moderate face climbing leads to a an excellent crux bulge. We cleaned some loose rock, including one large block, but there's still a bit of suspect rock in the middle; however, the crux is on excellent stone. If nothing else, the crux bulge at the top makes a great short top-rope problem from the Deuces Wild anchor and probably had been done this way before. The entire route protects fine and makes a nice change of pace for those who, for some reason, brought a rack to this crag.
This is between Passing Lane and Deuces Wild. Start on Passing Lane, clip the first bolt, step right and face climb past a small overlap to the base of a second bulge with cool crux moves. Finish at the Deuces Wild anchor.
Standard rack to #3 cam. Save a 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch cam to place in a slot at the top of the bulge, perfectly protecting the crux.
