Description 

Sit start as for Quincy Market But traverse right after the first move over the stone wall and top out on great holds. The moves over the stone wall are the crux because in your head all you can think about it not cracking your "cranium" off the wall below you. There is a hold with and X on it, just in case you don't know this means that this hold cannot be trusted to hold, it cannot be pulled out but if you have all your weight hanging on it there is potential it could pop out resulting in the dreaded "cranium" crash.

This route is named for the potential damage you can do to your cranium if you fall on the wall.

Location 

On the Stone Wall Boulder aka the Entrance Boulder, start as for Quincy Market.

Protection 

Pads and a good spotter for when you are above the stone wall.

A cool way to do this problem is start on the triangle starting jug of Stone Wall and traverse the lip into this route, it feels about v2 and a good variant.
