Classic boulder start leads to easier climbing above the 3rd bolt.
The third route to the right of Wicked Chimney.
Bolts to mussy hook anchors.

Valdez begins with crimps on overhanging rock. Boulder up and left to a large pocket and the 1st bolt. More steep moves lead past two more bolts, where the angle kicks back to less than vertical and fun moves all the way to the anchors.
