Start as for Dexter and move halfway along the muddy ledge to were the first pitch finishes. Tackle the bulges above directly with a hard mantelshelf using small side pull crack (not part of dexter)to reach a small tree (thread)Once here climb a long run out section up and leftwards diagonally until reaching a polished undercut crack, follow this to tree belay on lunchtime ledge.

Planned to do Dexter,but ended up on this route by mistake. Great Route. Used as an exercise to place gears. Placements of nuts and hexes hard. Lot's of placements for cams. Peg at the beginning of the first traverse at the end of the slab. Add one more placement or two to protect your second. Epic second pitch slab with a placement for a small hex or a cam at the very end of it to take a break, or just to feel safe again.

Tough crux, good route. Started up a (new?) slightly bold line just to the right of Sinister at about VS 4b to get straight up to the start of this. All in one pitch.

Possible 2nd ascent? Well protected crux, but a tenuous move to gain the sapling. Sustained slab to the break, with sparse gear. Felt solid for the grade, one star for overall quality.

Good route surprised this hasn't been done already, the bulge is a fairly obvious challenge. (First ascent)
