The top pitch of this beautiful climb is visible if you look up at just the right time as you walk around the corner from Yuk. Climb the first pitch of Rubus Fruticosus to the higher of the two ledge belays. The second pitch traverses right along a good horizontal to pick up the gently overhanging splitter crack. When the crack ends, move left to a jug and a crack that takes a small cam or bomber stopper, then top it out. Enjoy the good rock, moves, protection, and exposure. Morning shade.

The second pitch on this thing is spectacular!

Also I am pretty sure you need 2 ropes to rap these routes, although with a 70 there is a decent possibility you might barely make it?

I think you'll need two ropes, or an 80. A 70 might work though. Alternatively, you could do a short rap to the anchors on Trinket Man, then rap to the ledge, then rap again from under Kazi and Mito.

The traverse from the ledge is long enough that the crack stays clean.

spectacular and exposed route. Did the short rappel to the top of the sport line and a 70 gets you down
