Start about 50 feet right of When Joey Comes Marching Home at a golden slab with a bolt. Climb the slab up and slightly left to a steeper corner with two bolts. Go up and left through the corner onto a slab. Climb a short left leaning crack above to reach the upper bulge. Step right and pull through the final bulge at a bolt to reach a chain anchor.


This route is located about 50 feet to the right of When Joey Comes Marching Home (listed here as "Joey's"). There is a golden slab with a bolt at the start of this climb.


Roughly 4 bolts, standard rack
