Description 

This is the right hand line on the big shield of grey-black limestone to climber's left of Panthalassa. Scramble up a ramp to start. First 3 bolts are mid-5th, then the fun starts. Straight up for 6 more bolts. This climb is sequency and fairly sustained on the upper 3/4. Scott and I think this is the best pitch on the Evolution Fin thus far...
One could link into the upper part of the 2nd pitch of Panthalassa if one was so inclined.

Location 

Left of the second pitch of Panthalassa. HIke past the base of Proto-Pacific and Panthalassa 100 ft or so, then angle back up and right up a ramp system to its end. The route will be the right hand of two adjacent routes (left is an in-progress project). Begin on large pockets using a rail on the right til the 3rd bolt, then straight up the nice shield of grey limestone.

Protection 

9 bolts to chain anchors.
