The most difficult route in the amphitheater to date. It is a long endurance pitch that can be divided into four distinct sections. The opening section (5.10) is on gear with one bolt--bring a couple micro cams. The next three sections are sport bolted. Each of these sections has a distinct crux followed by continuously difficult climbing. There are stances that can be milked for rests below all of the upper cruxes.


The route starts on the face with the crack just to the left of Big Science and before the 3rd-class move to the Upper Tier.
