Description 

This brilliant route tackles the center portion of an 85 degree slab sandwiched between Biology of Small Appliances and Soul on Ice. Though I haven't tried the route as of yet, I did spend 5 hours on feb 2nd, 2014 scrubbing off a thick and tenacious layer of debris. Beneath all the detritus I found a farrago of perfectly sculpted holds. It is likely that Antidote saw one or two ascents back in 1990. Can't believe such a gem has been ignored for so many years.

Location 

Just left of the obvious arete at the far right of Earwax.

A days worth of scrubbing on this route. It is ready to go! Let's bring on the 2nd ascent. Last year I mini'd all the moves. Great great route. But, the finish has some microscopic holds.
