Directions:  This route is a variation start to the first pitch of Blurry eyes so see those directions.
Description: Probably the easiest pitch on the cliff!
    Pitch 1: Climb the right-facing corner for 15' until you can exit up left at a break. Follow the right side of the reverberating flake until you can move up left to the Blurry Eyes anchor.

Gear: For the original start you will need some small wires and cams, otherwise you will need finger to hand sized gear for the first pitch. The second pitch is all bolt protected except for one finger tip sized cam (.4 grey Camalot?) in a slot pocket. Belays are bolted.
Descent: Raps from the Blurry Eyes anchor or finish the route and do 2 raps with a single 60M.
