An obvious, large, low-angle ramp/slab that traverses above Brigham's Beer and joins Batman at its conclusion. Most of the route felt like 4th Class to me. Some short sections had a tricky move or two. Pretty fun climbing.
Hike to the start of Orangutan Afternoon. Continue another 50' northeast to a section of the wall that is broken. Scramble up just about anywhere (4th Class with occasional short sections with 5th Class moves) to gain the left/southwestern end of a huge ramp.
I recommend 8 cams (0.4"-2.5"), 8 nuts (0.3"-1"), 32 carabiners & 16 runners (24"). An experienced leader will probably only use half that in a rope length. But they might also choose to simul-climb it, so...
Climb down to the top of Between Iraq and a Hard Place and rappel from there.

I was one of the original first ascent members in 1987. Glad to see someone appreciate the climb.
