[Hide Comment] This is a great problem. You can also "exit right" by traversing right on a good horizontal to the right of the undercling. Seems to be about the same difficulty.

It also seems like there is a possible line from the same start, climbing more directly up and a little to the left. Basically the area in between this route and Kerosine. Anyone trying/tired it? Sep 20, 2015
[Hide Comment] HaHa...yup its my Direct Atomic Pleasure Project. It's been a long standing proj of mine. It clocks in at about V7/8 I think... I've fallen on the last move to the lip more times then I'd care to admit. Sep 21, 2015
[Hide Comment] I would say using the exit right on the low rail would be easier. Dec 28, 2015
