Route to the immediate right of Classic Head. Good stemming moves lead to a ledge. Upon gaining access to the ledge, a nice 15-20 foot runout to the next bolt. Bring your 'nads or some gear to protect the run. Afterwards outstanding face climbing on fun edges occurs. You may stop at the first set or continue on to the top of Head Wall. If you continue on, bring more draws and tie a knot in your rope. The book says its 100ft to the top, but my 60m was at its ends at the first set.
11-12 draws, plus two bolt anchors, and possible 1-1.5 inch cam.

...[named] after a Jeff Beck tune.... The other two routes on this wall: Any Head is Good Head & Classic Head were also established at that time by the same co-conspirators.
