Description 

Big moves to big holds, with a lot of foot swapping, so the pump clock is ticking. Crux move may be a dyno for some, it is certainly very big, and the best hold is the one furthest away. Good warmup for the Daily Planet routes.

Location 

On the extreme left edge of Antarctica, above and just left of the top of the Daily Planet Boulder.

Protection 

6 bolts, although the base is so sloping and loose that the logical start skips the first bolt. Fixe rap rings for anchors.

As of July 4, 2011, somebody is establishing a second pitch/extension to this route. No further details except to say that you shouldn't pull on somebody's fixed line without the owner's say-so.

That rope is a Huey original relic left behind and abandoned for years now. I untied it from the tree on top a couple years ago and threw it down while I was up there establishing several lines to the left on Metropolis. Instead of falling to the ground where I could gather it up and dispose of it, it still hangs, tied to a bolt above the first pitch anchor. I never went up to clean it off though it needs to be done. The second pitch looks to be intact and climbable. Anyone???
