Description 

Step up on the initial, big footholds, then wonder what to do next. A devious puzzle.

The answer seems to be: use crimps and foot-chips to get your foot into the large, sloping incut. Stand up and reach for a large hold at the top of the slab. Get your fingers in the horizontal out on the right face (the first good gear!), and continue straight up or move over to the right.

Location 

Six feet right of "Levitation".

Protection 

A couple of pieces in the 1/4" to 3/4" range.

No typo, I disagree with The Book on this one.
