Description 

Climb up the wide crack, move left to the narrow crack and climb it to its end, reaching right for good holds and pro; then back left and high (5.10a) for another good hold. Follow a crack up and right to a vertical crack. At good horizontal holds, traverse left 6', then go up into an inverted "V" notch overhang. Climb this via a left-slanting crack on the left side, then make a delicate (5.10a) mantle and up easy rock to anchors on the top of the buttress.
Good pro, several exciting moves, a bit pumpy.

Location 

Start: same as Eatin' Tripe & Lichen It; on the buttress forming the right side of the Amphitheatre. Look for the obvious hand/fist crack of ET&LI; this route splits off to the left at the "Fang" flake above the OW/chimney.

Protection 

One large cam (6"), doubles 1/2" to 1 1/4" cams and singles up to 3 1/2", and a full set of stoppers. Bolt anchors at top.
