Description 

A cold weather route. You'll need every bit of friction (and skin) you can get for the thin biters that lead up to a slopey finishing crux. Very balancy. Decent rest right before crux. The insecure ending makes it real exciting to reach the anchors. Just as good as 'Butterfly' and 'Beetle Juice', if not better.

Location 

Center of the wall, between Butterfly and Beetle Juice. Second route to the right of WASP. Work up the middle iron dyke.

Protection 

13 bolts, chain anchor
