Directions:  Look for an obvious ramp that looks suspiciously like the first pitch of Upper Refuse.
Description: no description available
    Pitch 1: Climb the easy angled ramp (something like the first lead of Upper Refuse) in the middle of the cliff to reach the 45-50' high open book which you follow to the top of the cliff. The crux is the final 15 or 20 feet of the route.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: Descend by rappelling the route. A single 60-meter rope doubled reaches to easy down-climbing. Or, you can easily walk off from the top of the cliff by heading south.
History:  September 25,1998 - George Hurley, Michael Kahn
