To locate this route, hike pretty far right from Superslab. If you feel like you passed the route, just keep hiking. It's worth the hike.

To quanitify a little, these climbs are about a 15 minute hike past superslab and ATC. Def worth the hike, these two routes are very fun. They are brushed and chalked up. Go get on them. Clipping the anchors on this thing can be hard when you don't know where to go.
