Description 

Climb up flakes and jugs for a couple of clips until the route takes a hard left. If you are tall enough, lean out and clip the draw out to the left and commit to the crux section involving cross-through moves, side-pulls, and slopers; this section is very nice and finishes with a move back up and right to well deserved rest. Finish by climbing straight up on easier, but engaging climbing.

Good rock, good movement, and fun climbing.

Location 

The furthest route on the right side of the lower tier routes (Behemoth is the last route on the right of the lower tier before the upper cave).

Protection 

Fixed draws.
