Description 

This is the right variation of a threesome of variations up a slab on the northwest aspect of this crag.

Start up Quicksilver until just below the roof. Choose the right-angling set of bolts, find a second crux (10) and fire for the 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks on the right.

Some have called this 5.10.

This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

This route starts the same as Quicksilver (which goes straight up the face through crimps over the roof 10c? Erica however moves to the right and over the roof via a large flake (at bolt 6), the crux is getting your feet set on the roof prior to continuing to the finish. As of today 6/10/13, there is only one (sissy) hanger at the top, you can however clip this and continue past it to the chains for Thunderhead, on the ledge and to the right.
