Description

Start on the large under cling directly under the crack on Time Dilation. Climb the first 8 feet up to the small roof feature on the same line as Time Dilation, then veer left and up to a small under cling rail. Continue straight up over a small mantel and a finish crux on the face 4 feet to the left of the Time Dilation crack. Don't fall.

There is a large flake (8 feet tall, 1-2 feet wide) to the left of the bottom of the climb that sounds very hollow and might be pried off for a more direct line in the future. Don't use for now, it will probably break off if you do and leave you hurting.

Location

From the Friction Fighter area of North Little Foxx head left (toward Lake Superior) for about 75 yards at about the same elevation. Look for the huge Super Slab. There's a little bit of a trail angling toward it from the freestanding boulder (Shikidang). Decayed Strange Quark is on the left side of the Super Slab.

Protection

Multiple pads and spotters.
