|This one is an added bonus for getting to the top of "Hypothesis," and worth the approach. The face is still very lichen-laden, which adds a little sketch point to the rating, so don't get skiffed by the thin crux after the first bolt.|

This can be easily TRd by rapping down from the top of Permanent Income Hypothesis. To lead it, you either need to stick clip the first bolt or to bring a couple of pieces of gear to make an anchor at the base - a fall without an anchor before the first bolt would be very serious.
This worthwhile route is cleaning up with successive ascents but still features a bit of lichen (the main holds are lichen-free though).
