Considered to be one of the most beautiful walls in Arkansas. This route follows the most obvious weakness on the left center of the wall with excellent movement the entire way. Start as for Instant Karma then go right through dihedral, clip a fixed pin, head out right onto the face through a finger crack, horizontals, and finish with a seam using the small crimps on each side up to a small dihedral and roof. One last long move to good ledges and the glorious finish. Climbs more like a face than a crack. 3 distinct boulder problems and marginal rests getting harder as you go. This route was renamed Bereavement on the free ascent due to the first ascensionist's grandfather passing away that week. It also fits due to it being on the plaque wall.
