Begin just to the left of Entrance exam, and about 15 feet to the right of Nature of the Beast. Move straight up, clipping two bolts through the scoop, then head up through the crack (some jam, others crimp). Pass just right of the large cave (mmmmm guano). Reach long and left to clip the 6th bolt (crux#1), and endure a second crux at the 8th bolt. Endure, this route is a fine pump fest!
