Sport climb which features the first 2 bolts of bouldery moves (11b). Three (3) more bolts which leave the right side of a large hueco take one over a bulgey area of steadily increasing difficulty and abrasiveness. The severity wanes from the 5th to the top especially if one bears right.


The 2nd from the rightmost route on this the main Yakov Wall (two more sport routes lie 100' north on a separate formation). This route also shares the anchor with the route just to its left (Descent of the Fire Ants).


5 bolts total. The consenses among others is that another bolt just above the 2nd would have been more enjoyable and would result in an additional star. Both getting to the 4th bolt and sucessfully clipping it is a challenge.
