Description 

A great, varied route that boils down to two short and wildly different sections. Scramble up the ramp and hand crack to start things off. It's relatively easy to get to the first bolt, but a .75 or 1 Camalot is very useful as a directional. Once you've clipped the hard climbing begins. A few thin, technical moves lead to the third bolt and a short undercling traverse left, setting you up for the money move - the dyno. Stick the dyno, clip, then pull a couple long lock-offs to reach the easy slab finish past two more bolts.
Originally graded 5.13a, but I think better beta for the dyno has lowered the difficulties.

Location 

North face of the Cube. Look for the obvious hand crack that begins after a bit of easy scrambling up the ramp.

Protection 

A 0.75 or #1 Camalot is very useful at the start as a directional, then it's 6 bolts to a sport anchor.
