Description 

Start in crack on the opposite side of the boulder than the topout of the Hunger Artist, throw left to tiny edges to head underneath the boulder, then follow holds staying tight as to not dab on the boulder underneath you as you keep to the side of the boulder with the rock underneath you (stay to the right of the hueco jug for the original variation of this climb) and head to slopers and a slopey mantle topout (same topout as Hunger Artist). Large dab factor present at all times on this climb.

Location 

On the low face of the Hunger Artist boulder (opposite of the topout of the Hunger Artist).

Protection 

A pad for the start and possibly one for a spotter to move onto the boulder underneath you after you've squeezed through the underbelly of the climb.

One day Randy Burks and i were walking through the power cut... he looks at me and says "hunters is played out... i think we've climbed everything." I look at him and say "no way, look at that thing." and point to what would be agathon. he's like, "do you mind if i give it a shot before you get on it?" i said sure... so he's working the problem and chis zweig walks down the hill and says "hi guys! whatcha doin'?" So after randy falls off chis sits down below the crack start of agathon and proceeds to send all the way to the end, and Randy thows a fit.... it was historical. chris looks at me and asks what to do. I tell him send it now, and we'll talk about it later. Chris, being the nice guy he is, steps off... Randy was so pissed he would talk to chris for a month... ah, good times....
