Description 

Originally toproped and named by Piana and Skinner. Aside from one bolt and some pins already in place, all bolts were placed on lead. The last bolt was drilled while hanging off a wild Big Bro placement. Easily the steepest line in the Needles with huge moves between huge holds. Fairly short yet very stout. Crux is leaving the last bolt. A #3 is nice before the bolts, and a #1 is key once the crux has been pulled.

Location 

This is the unmistakable overhanging arête on the NE corner of Aquarium. At the top of gully. Just left of the rap line.

Protection 

5 bolts
#1 & #3
Bolted anchor w/ webbing
