The description is a little misleading since it isn't the last route anymore. Aftershock is to its immediate right.

I think this is one of the best 10c routes in the quarry. The crux moves reaching the large flake take a little bit of working out, and after that the climbing gets better on good rock in a great position.

Continuously fun climbing throughout the length of this route with excellent exposure as you near the anchors, but a fall just before clipping the 4th bolt is best avoided.
