This is a great, hard-but-not-impossible toprope from the Burly Dudes' anchor. Begin just to the right of the small staging area at the base of Burly Dudes and immediately step up into difficult, thin climbing on good but small edges and some hopeful smearing. After about 50 feet or so, the climbing gets less steep and eases off in difficulty.
This route is just right of the 4th route from the left (making this essentially the 5th route from the left) on the north-facing Grey Wave Wall. Scramble up the rock gully and begin just to the right of the best staging area. You can rap from the anchors (2 ropes, bring webbing and rings) or walk off to the left along a ledge system.
Top rope from bolted anchor (old buttonheads/Stardryvens, bring webbing and rings) at the top of Burly Dudes. Be sure to keep a tight belay as the crux is sustained climbing at the bottom and there is a lot of rope out, even if you are belaying from the top.

Circ Toepel and I put this route up as a top rope in summer 1988.
