Approach: Hike up around the right side of the Wall of the Dead to the upper tier of Avalon. Traverse left on a trail below the routes Jaguar and Black Tiger. After about 100 yards, you'll see a 35-foot-high wall on the right with two 2-bolt anchors and several cracks lacing the wall. This is the Wall of the Goddess.
Amrita is the right-leaning finger- and hand-crack that heads up to the 2-bolt anchor on the right.
Climb the crack and reach right to clip the anchor. Lower off.
The climb is sustained and strenuous. There's a hard move right off the deck; I protected it with a green Alien. Above, I got a #1 Camalot, yellow and black Aliens, a yellow/green hybrid Alien, and a #.75 Camalot for additional pro.
A short pitch, but it packs a punch.
Gear to 1.5". 2-bolt anchor.

Short but sweet. Do it quick of you're there.
