Once the hardest climb in the Black Hills, and given the methods used to establish, somewhat controversial for the time. Originally top-roped by Eric Doub, then first freed on TR by Kevin Bein, June 17th, 1987. Some bolts were placed by Greg Child and later finished by Rusty Lewis and Pete DeLannoy. This line is a dedication to Kevin Bein (died summer of '88). Follows a steepening black streak with short hard crux near the top.


Located on E side of Aquarium Rock. Just up hill (to the right) of Four Little Fishies.
