Climb the same start as Crime and Punishment. At the second bolt, bust left to six more bolts and a bolt anchor. This needs one rope to descend.

After the addition of the "panty bolt", you now cut left at the THIRD bolt and then head straight up to an anchor hidden on a ledge at a perfect height for a 60m to reach. Extended 24" runners are a good idea to reduce the rope drag. Compared to Durangutan, Apes, and Crime and Punishment, this is the least trafficked route and is accordingly the dirtiest. The climbing is more sustained than some of the other sport routes on the face, but the crux move is extremely reachy.
