Start by the Maple Tree, a few face moves to gain a small ledge and a short 5' traverse to the left then ascend the broken buttress up to a stance 20' down from the top where there are anchors.
Cams, mostly very small to a single 2", and a 3/4-7/8" nut for an solid piece at the crux at the top and a small lighter.

Congratulations to our Washington brothers who can, as of today, legally now partake of a puff of weed without being criminals or breaking any laws. In the spirit of legality and openness I will out the following. The name of this route came due to the rock pipe that was drilled into the route at the anchor. A small weatherproof plastic film canister was tucked up on a ledge of what is now not illegal substance was left behind with the caveat that if any climber wanted a puff, feel free to take some out and help yourself (if there was some in the canister), if you were flush and had some extra, leave a little bit extra in the film canister for your bros who will be following.
In climbing parlance, a headwall typically is the most challenging part of a big wall. In this case, the name derived not from it being a challenge, as to the fact that there was the rock pipe to help your head:-)
