Description 

Climb past 4 bolts on good rock to a committing pull onto the big black flake. Delicate moves gain a lieback on the right edge. Follow bolts on the slab to anchors above.

Location 

From the start of "Solid Gold," traverse left into a large amphitheater. This route start immediately to the right of a large gully at the back of the amphitheater.

Protection 

About 8 bolts, a #0.5 Camalot makes the pull onto the flake a little less spicy, and another #0.5 Camalot makes the run-out off the top of the flake more reasonable.

This route is harder than Little Sister, and the rock is less solid. Needs to clean up -- three crimper holds broke under my fingers, and there's a cubic foot sized, loose block begging to be pulled on at the second overlap (above the big black flake). But fun.
