100 percent natural. This was the original concept line bolted by Boone Speed. In order to climb the majority of it, he started on Don't Call Me Dude. With Boone Speed's blessing, Chris Sharma linked the original start of Necessary Evil to Route of All Evil. Sharma describes this as a 5.14a boulder route, with another 5.14a stacked on top of it, broken up only by a bad shake out hold.
