Todd Paris heads up on the FA.

Description 

Climb rolling grade 2 slabs, through an oak branch screen onto a large slab, and climb straight up to an obvious fat, vertical headwall. This short crux can probably be avoided, which would make this a better climb: it's mostly easy, fat ice slab except for that final headwall.
Belay at trees near a 70m rope's end.

Location 

30 mins past the Waterfall Wall. Work your way (with difficulty) through a talus pile of huge boulders, aiming for a long cliffband's lowest, outside corner (this is the so-called Caterpillar Cliff). This route starts right of a smaller outcrop just right of that cliff. Higher, the fat ice of the route is visible.

Protection 

Screws. Y'get to use the long ones here!
