EKV starts with nice climbing along a 'slabby' prow. The angle kicks back on jugs. Fairly easy (but pumpy) climbing leads to the powerful and technical crux. Even after the hardest moves, EKV stays out you for a couple of bolts. Superb!

The holds on this climb are SOOO fun. overhanging and positive till three bolts from the top, a several move crux involving a kewl undercling to crimps and 2fers, and then incuts for two more bolts to the chains. Awesome awesome endurance route.

Phenomenal! Significantly better than Happiness in my opinion. Also easier to redpoint than Happiness considering the abundance of good rests.

Bills description was correct for 2007. As of 2010, EKV is between Papa Knows Best and Calm Like a Bomb, and including Crown Prince Abdullah, it is 3 routes left of Happiness.
Also if memory serves there are 11 bolts and a sport anchor.
