Description 

Start just left of the bottom of Hellhound, follow bolts up, left, and up onto the prow. Ascend the prow past the first crux then, instead of finishing on the bailout Defective Agency, traverse back right to engage the second crux, the "Spock's ear" finish.
When I bolted this route I attempted to link the coolest features I could climb. It wanders a bit but is really fun with great balance moves combined with a powerful finish. On the FA I was a whisker from the send, pulling up the final overhang, when a hold broke sending me flying. Eric got his turn and put it in the bag.

Location 

This route is located on the left side of the crag; on a darker colored, clean buttress.

Protection 

Bolts to chain anchors.
(It shares anchors with Defective Agency and Hellhound.)
