Description 

Established on lead in the fall of 1990. Climb Wild Kingdom up to half-way through the roof traverse crux (do not go the caboose) but continue straight up past several bolts to a 5.12 boulder problem 100 feet up. Best position at Moore's. Massive falls from difficult moves above bomber Hilti drop-in bolts.

Location 

Fire Wall
Start on Wild Kingdom
Continue to the top of the cliff or find second (legacy) set of anchors above Underdog's. No modern anchors (go figure)

Protection 

Small wires, TCUs, small tri-cams, several fixed pins amd several bolts

While not really "modern" anchors, POV now has three fixed nuts with lowering biners about 15 Ft. up and left from the last bolt on the route at a small stance near the arete. They are bomber for lowering; back them up for top-roping.

Is this route run-out up high, or does the R rating come from the part shared with Wild Kingdom?

"R" from WK and spaced-out fixed gear on high. Crux sequences is well above the bolt offering no way to dog through the moves, unless you bring a hook to hang-on. Remember redpointing it on a single 8mm half-rope, pink in color. HUUUUGE falls. One of my favorite routes ever. I was so lucky to have been there back then...thanks to Tim Fisher for hacking me under his lycra and spandex wings.
