Description 

A great climb up great rock. Start right of the arete, just left of Hot Chocolate. Climb up and left to arete, then up past many bolts to top. Technically the crux is up high, but there are several cruxy sections throughout the climb. This one is full-value!

Location 

Located downstream on the West Wall, on the prominant arete in the middle of Shady Grove. Just left of Hot Chocolate and 3 climbs to the right of Darkstar.

Protection 

Lots of bolts, chains.

This might be my favorite sport route of all time. Really thin and tenuous at the crux.
