Begin climbing the overhang below two large inclusions, left of the tree. From a pocket, pull or lieback up and onto the inclusions. Continue working up the face on shallow pockets and edges to a hole (3rd bolt) below a large fractured inclusion. Work up and right on shallow pockets and edges to the ridge line. Climb the right edge of the slab past a 5th bolt and a run out to the anchor. It is difficult to clean this route from the anchor due to the leaning nature of the line. Careful of the swing/pendulum. Best to have a 2nd clean.
Located on the east face of Hyperion Slab, in an alcove 40 ft. uphill (north) of "Goldline," left of the tree.
5 bolts & 2-ring Fixe anchor.
