This route started as something that Walt and I were climbing on before I bolted the Evil Alchemist. It was super chossy, so we relocated it into the crack, where you can get a couple nice hand jams before pulling on the slab. it's actually pretty fun if you like hand jams.
We named this route "Evil Elliot" after Elliot Bloch who was taking massive whips off this one while learning to sport climb at the time [he later became a total badass].

|This climb seemed substantially easier than the 11c rating given for it in the guidebooks (I used the crack), and I felt the bolt spacing was not something to get worried about.|
