Description 

Super classic Rushmore 5.10 that may rival 'Deja Vu Prophecy'. Great exposure way above the highway on a steepening slab. Start in a short dihedral on a big ledge just left of a large block that sits at the bottom left corner of the overhanging orange face. Be careful of loose blocks! Finger to hand size gear is nice to have for reaching the first bolt. Link the bolts straight up, right of crescent arete, to a small point. From here you could finish out the Conn route to the top or rap into 'Snakebite Evangelist' for a sweet top-rope.

Location 

NW corner. Bolted black face left of large streaked wall that faces the road. One 60m rope rap.

Protection 

11 bolts
.5-#1 BD (optional)
Chain anchors

Spectacular route. Thought I'd mention that a BD .5 with a long sling comes in handy to minimize the distance (20 ft) between the first two bolts.
