This was the last natural route to be solved at odu. Start far right near a small door. Climb off a difficult heel to two slopers. Continue left and up to the jug on The Freshmen, rest, then crank up to the ledge directly above to match both hands and one foot (it works.). From here traverse right to some bad flat edges and then straight up to the anchors. A true power test-piece.

This route alone is worth a 5 hour drive!
