Sometimes when you go up too far, too fast, you experience decompression sickness...and without proper caution, this route is bound to induce it. This is an extension to 'Serpant's Rising'- clip a long sling (important) on the first bolt (after Serpant's) before firing into the stunning, upper headwall. This overhanging finish features awesome movement on a variety of grips - one of the best routes at The Crags. Clipping the third draw is tough, but safe, with an attentive belayer.
