F.A. Brent Kertzman & Mike Miller in 1992 as a clean gear variation to the start of "Calculus of Variation". Not sure why Mark S. didn't push this thing to the top as the moves above the anchors are about 5.12+. Likewise not certain why some pretty solid placements in good rock were ignored and bolted.
