This route shares the first few bolts with Happy Nightmare Baby. Start just left of the main corner in the Fish Wall, near a pine tree and a block which leans against the wall. At the first ledge, move up and left (Happy Nightmare Baby goes up and right). Climb up the thin face to a small, right-facing corner, then move up and left to the anchors at the top of the cliff.
This route is left of (and shares a start with) Happy Nightmare Baby on the Fish Wall. The Fish Wall is left (north) of the Mural Wall in The Gallery. Follow the signs to the Mural Wall, then head about 75' left where the trail meets the cliff.
10 bolts plus anchors.

This route is stellar. The crux is pretty short (and really hard!) just after the two routes diverge. A nice long, easier finish.

The anchor was somewhat fixed yesterday. The last bolt had one smash link on it, so a quick link was added so that it is now possible to lower off without destroying your rope. Don't take the quicklink! Unfortunately the rusted bed frame hanger is still there. I would have fixed that too if I had the hardware with me.
