Start atop a large block about midway down the left wall of the Amphitheatre (same as for Do or Dive). Step onto the wall and move left to a crack system; follow this until it ends, then trend left until you're below a much larger crack. Gain the big crack (crux) and follow it to its end, then move right to another right-arching wide crack (the guidebook inexplicably refers to this as a "chimney"). Climb this wide crack up and right to finish at the rap anchors shared by Golden Earring and other routes in this section.
