Description 

On the right hand side of This Is Your Brain. Start up a ramp just right of Mad Science. Thin cracks (nuts and small cams) lead to a bolt and a right trending ramp. Move up the ramp past a horn and a potential #3 camalot placement to a short wall with thin holds and two bolts. Climb a featured face above past a horn and a perfect hand crack to a ledge below a roof. Move out over the roof and up past three more bolts, then climb past thin cracks (nuts and blue/yellow TCUs) to the top.

Location 

On the right side of This Is Your Brain.

Descend as per Mad Science.

Protection 

6 bolts and gear from blue TCU to #3 Camalot. Two solid horns can be slung as well (not exactly necessary, but done on the FA). Often done just with the bolts and three or four cams, but this is pretty sporty, with up to 8m between pieces.
