Description 

This is a good route on good rock. There is more gear and more holds than is immediately apparent from the ground, making for a reasonably good route. The route is not obvious from the ground, but once you start climbing it, the holds will appear. The rock quality here is excellent.

Location 

This route starts just left of the Snickers Dihedral and rises up and left under a slight overlap of rock that goes the length of the face. Climb up to that overlap a few feet, then use the best footholds available to slab your way up near-perfect stone. What appears to be (I was soloing and didn't place it) an undercling cam placement will appear just as you need gear. Continue up and left past that onto easier moves, more positive holds, and more gear where you will turn right and go up into a solid crack with gear to the summit.

Protection 

A small cam up under an undercling down low, then transitioning to a crack with other gear.
