Description 

First pitch: Technical slab with some very insecure moves at mid-height. Get your best friction boots out for this one. A nice crisp day will make the numerous high steps and rockovers seem only very dicey.
Second pitch: Follow bolts and possible runout sections to the top of the crag.

Location 

First pitch: Start in the shallow left facing corner to the right of "German People".
Second Pitch: Uses the the shared anchor of Wall Of Separation. Continue up the bolted line (possibly runout slightly) to the top of the formation. Single rope rap using whatever bolted stations look like they might get you down.

Protection 

First Pitch: 10 Bolts to a bolt anchor.
Second Pitch: Bolts to the top of the formation. Bolt anchor.

It is widely known that the "Lambada" is an Afro_Brazilian forbidden dance of love. The dome and this route are named after this wild and stimulating dance. I think Mick might have taken a few classes to improve flexibility.
