A belter of a route, possibly the best on this wall. Start right of Supermassive Blackhole and In the Line of Fire, a 7c+ to its right (not described).
1) 7a+, 25m. Climb the blocky start to a ledge. A crack-line points the way with increasing difficulty to a ledge below a V-groove. Ascend the groove in the left arete to a bolt belay on a ledge below the next pitch.
2) 7a, 25m. Follow the arete via some technical moves and some long reaches.
3) 7a, 25m. The amazing final arete is a cracking pitch and a fitting crescendo to this amazing route.
