Description 

This is an inconsequential trad line to the right of Alley Cat Street that can be TR'ed off the same anchors as Alley Cat Street for a bit mo' mileage.

Find a crack just to the right of Alley Cat Street. Ascend it. The crux was about midheight where the route steepens briefly. 0.62 stars :)

You can rap from the anchors of Alley Cat Street.

Protection 

Standard rack to #3.5 Friend.

10b might be the rating if you are getting worked trying to place pro, on TR the difficulty of the moves seemed quite easier than Alley Cat Street. You be the judge.

Leading this is a scary and dirty adventure. The only pro that I found before getting to the roof is a slung hollow horn, a marginal 00 C3, and a questionable brass offset. After cleaning and pulling off holds on the climb and too scared to try to downclimb it, I sacked up and went for the jug below the roof. Fortunately I nailed it and found solid pro before pulling the roof and in the upper corner. I finished the climb clean after having my foot slip once on lichen and catching myself towards the top of the climb before the long traverse left over to the anchors. It was a once in a lifetime experience for me, but I think this climb would have potential if all the loose rock was removed and anchors installed above the line.
