A Top rope climb from the rappel anchors at the bottom left corner of the sign. Not sure if I have the FA here on this face, so feel free to chat with me if there is a conflict.
Make a high step up and pull the small overhang, watch out for rope stretch here as a loose belay could result in hitting the ledge. Stand up on the face and traverse left 3 feet on a good hand rail. Make a long reach for a pocket and continue straight up the face. Scamper through the break down and get ready for the final crux. Make a single move using the right edge and hand traverse out left on the overhanging wall using a hand rail just over the lip and out of sight. Traverse to the left side and move up the outer corner to the rappel anchors.
Start a few feet left of “Hard Up” near the “D” in the graffiti Debbie.
It's good to extend a top-system from the bolts about 2 feet lower to prevent rope abrasion.
