Description 

Giants of Science is a fantastic route that climbs the face to the right of the dihedral on the upper ledge. It is a consistent, athletic line with some interesting moves and a committing crux. Do not come to Asbury Park without doing both this and Teardrops on the City.

Location 

Scramble up to the ledge, which currently has a fixed rope to assist. After you climb the route, it is easiest just to rap all the way down to the main ledge from the top of Giants of Science, thus avoiding reversing the somewhat sketchy scramble.

Great route. The varnish is cool. Cerebral crux.
