This route lies on top of the Hanging Gardens Wall on the black-streaked headwall at the extreme right. It is a burly and serious climb, and some of the clips are quite difficult. A technical start leads you to a steep section that begins and ends with big throws. The middle houses the crux.


The best way to approach this route is to climb up towards Sesame Street and from the anchors before the Sesame Street zig-zag crack traverse right on the big ledge system to the base of Scorpion Seam.
