This off-route variation to Rite of Spring is located about 30-40 feet left of that route. Start directly behind a large tree.
P1: (5.8+, 60 feet) Piece together a line between plates and huecos with lots of lichen and loose rock. Aim for a large, right-facing dihedral and belay at its base.
P2: (5.9, 165 feet) Climb the dihedral and angle right into the crux section of Rite of Spring at a thin crack. (0.5 cam) Finish on that route.
A single 30m rap from the large eye bolt above the Southwest Chimney will put you on easy ground. The Haas guidebook topo is a little off for the line of Rite of Spring. It shows the line a little left of the true line.
Down the hill from the Southwest Chimney, the start is right behind a large tree.
