Directions:  Located between the Ethereal Buttress and Echo Roof. Look for the obvious left angling dike with bolts.
Description: Although this is arguably a 2 pitch route, nobody ever does the second one. This is a real exercise in how well you can stick to the rock.
    Pitch 1: Follow the dike to the belay.

    Pitch 2: Step left off the belay heading for a solution pocket. Aid past 3 bolts (A1), mantle on the ledge and head right to a tree belay.

Gear: quickdraws
Descent: rappel the route with 2 ropes
