AKA "Hornblende Highway", this route is just left of the shorter, left-facing, angling corner. Follow a 6-8" wide seam of black hornblende straight up the face, passing the end of the left corner/roof. Tan anchors mark the finish. The climbing isn't very hard, but the placements are poor in flared cracks, especially down low. The left-facing corner/roof half-way up offers the best solid pro, clip this with a long runner.
Anchors on top (tan). Single set of small-mid range cams. (Smaller Aliens to #1 Camalot).

This is likely a better TR, since the first reasonable pro is probably 35-40 feet up, except for maybe a marginal sling around an iffy horn maybe 20 feet up. Near the top, you can reach left and clip 2 bolts. Still, it's worth the effort.
