10 feet left of Murciélago. A great variety of technical and powerful climbing that follows a shallow, left-facing dihedral that turns into a four foot roof. Layback/finger lock the crack above the 4th bolt until clipping the chain on the 5th bolt, maneuver through the roof using a few underclings and a powerful layback. A flat sloper does not offer much but a bump to the good hold above.
This line of bolts are now perma-draws. Featured route of the month.

Great line, beautifully bolted, with numerous cruxy moments before the boulder problem guarding the anchors. Harder than Simple Math IMO.

Definitely more sustained and powerful than Simple Math.
