Description 

Start below narrow arete, 5.10 climbing on good rock to left of lower, broken rock section of blunt arete leads to overhanging crux and finishes on only slightly easier ground. You can use a longer runner for the fourth bolt, which may feel "out of line" as its placement was dictated by rock quality and is a bit farther left than the "ideal" line.

Location 

Up and around the main face of GodHead North from the start of "The Gods..." Scramble up a chute, of sorts, and find quality rock nestled on the north side, hidden from the sun. See location photo for a pretty decent location.

Protection 

8 bolts, bring long draws if you plan on a slingshot TR as there's a bulge just below the anchors.

Excellent, sustained climbing on some of the best rock in the area. A must-do in the Refuge.

Maybe it was because it was the last climb of a good day, but this sure seemed harder than "The Gods Must Think I'm Crazy", which is not how I remembered them to be! I must be getting "Climbzheimers" according to Laurel.

Great route 11b/c....Did this and onsighted the thing next to it "budda belly"?

Felt the belly was 12b. A good belayer for going to the 3rd (crux) bolt is nice for the mind. Looked like an easier path traversing right, but puts you into a bad fall/swing potential
