Description 

Awesome crack route. can be seen from the trail walking up to the chin area. It is the one clean line that splits the cliff. sustained the whole way with 2 distinct mid/hard 10 cruxes. Climbing involves finger crack, flaring chimney, and exposed arete climbing...Classic route!

Location 

start by rapping in from the top or you can approach from the bottom

Protection 

Gear is PG/R. No fixed protection or anchors at top. If toproped, sling the bush and put in a couple of pieces.

In the Fasulo guidebook Jim Adair is credited as doing the FA in the 70's. No specific date

Pretty sure this route was named Rhadamanthus, not Rhodamanthus. Rhadamanthus was one of the judges of the dead in Greek mythology.

At least that's what Jim Adair told me.
