Description 

Start at the base of a chimney in the same spot as Space Walk and Mind Over Splatter.

Scramble up the chimney about 10 feet, where you'll find a hand-sized crack on the left wall for pro. Stem/chimney until you can reach a corner system on the right wall. This corner is to the left of the upper portion of Mind Over Splatter. Climb this corner system to its top, then go up a short crack on the left wall. When the crack ends, face climb up and left to the fixed anchor on top of the second pitch of Head Over Heals.

Location 

Start at the base of a chimney in the same spot as Space Walk and Mind Over Splatter.

Protection 

In addition to a standard JT rack, carry a good selection of medium to large cams and a of couple slings.

Note that as you rappel down from this route, you can easily TR the second pitch of Head Over Heals (the steep 10a handcrack). Added value!
