Directions:  Hike left along the cliff past Robinson Crusoe and continue to Cakewalk. Climb the first pitch (easy) of Cakewalk to the large tree-covered ledge and walk left until you see the 4 bolts left of the obvious gargoyle.
Description: The climb starts right under 4 bolts just left of the obvious gargoyle.
    Pitch 1: Climb the slightly overhanging face using layback moves for the serious business. There is a thank-God hold right at the top of the overhanging section. 5.9+ (30 meters)

Gear: a small rack including draws, #3 Camelot, and some small wires and tricams for the upper slab. NOTE: you will need a 60 meter rope as the route is exactly 30 meters long.
