Starting in the gully just east of the westernmost Penguin, climb past a chossy start to better rock above.


The route is located on the indistinct, rounded arete of the West Penguin, to the right of Stem Cell Research on the southeast corner of the tower. Start a short ways up the gully, and follow bolts to the top. Rappel from Mussy Hooks, or continue to the top of the formation, using the last few bolts of Stem Cell Research.

This is a great route! Challenging and tricky and fun. Intelligently bolted.

In agreement with BAd that the bolting was masterfully done.
Excellent route with thought provoking movement.
