There are now anchors on the face below the ledge for top-roping.

The original route continued following the flake system (and adequate protection) up and to the right then topped-out on the ledge with anchors above the ledge. The variation finish to the left angles up the uprotected face to a set of anchors below the ledge and is easy but R-rated.

The left variation finish is now bolted and known as "Put the Best Foot Forward" 5.8 (mixed).

Very Fun climb to play around on. Big plates and great holds!

If you go about 10-15 right of the start there is a slabby face with a football sized feature in the middle. Using this feature to climb up to the first rounded ledge makes for a more interesting start, but should be toproped as I saw no good way to protect it.

It is not difficult to traverse left while lowering off SEND ME ON MY WAY and get to the last bolt of this climb, from there you can just stand up at the bolt and clip the anchors to setup a toprope to do this climb if you don't have trad gear. It is a pretty cool route IMO with a couple interesting bulges to pull/sidestep. Some of the holds may not be around as this gets more popular :)
