Description 

Excellent work, Mr. Harkness, for giving us this line. It's the best at the cliff, and not deadly for the grade (probably a little soft). It hits the best position at Shovel Point, the rock is good, and the moves are surprisingly easy for the feature that you climb.
It's a small miracle that the rock is just featured enough in this spot as to allow such a magnificent line.

Location 

Look for Narcoleptic Epic, which finishes in a little gravel shoot at the east side of the main climbing area (about thirty feet east of the Sugar Plum Slab). Straw House climbs the arete to the west of the horror that is the Narcoleptic Epic corner.
