Description 

Start off on a good flat hold that is often wet, and move into sequential tips laybacks (probably the crux moves). At the top of the corner is a slam dunk move out right to a sloper then traverse left on good jugs. A sharp fingerlock or a crimpy sidepull gets you out of the mini-roof. Deadpoint to a great jug. Fight the pump with big moves between great locks to the top.

Location 

Route is shaded.
Three routes left of Jaws and two right from Chockstone. Obvious hard trad line.

Protection 

Small gear at the bottom, plus bigger pieces up to 3 camalot. This route also takes great stoppers, especially over the roof.
