First claimed ascent by Terry Andrews and Sky Checota (Spring 2004). First go into the Cave of Daddy Longlegs. To get to the cave, either climb the Gong Show or do any of the routes to get to the ledge above Made in the Shade or For a Rocker and then head right - down squirmy ledge to get to the cave. most people lay on their backs but some people (texans mostly) actually lay on their stomachs! Once to the cave, go in about 10 feet. Route climbs the chimney straight up for about 20 feet to a window where you can place the cams, then goes up and squeezes past a ledge with loose rock until you reach the rhino birth window. Squeeze out of this and plop onto an awesome belay ledge! Its nice if you don't position your belayer directly beneath the climber. Look for bats among the hordes of Daddy Longleg Spiders!
