Starts just left of Fantasia. Follow silver hangers up the slab to a steep arete. This one is not over until you clip the anchors. Great route.
8 bolts to chain anchors.

The hero moves near the top of this route are outstanding.

I pulled off a couple of big chunks and lots of scree from the right side of the middle of the climb and 'X'ed a bunch of big rock chunks that are still there. They look/feel pretty rotten and will eventually pull off if yarded or stood on. Wouldn't be a huge deal except the belayers for this and Fantasia don't really have anywhere to go if a hundred pounds of rock come crashing down. BETA WARNING: you don't need to touch the 'X'ed sections to do this climb in the most efficient fashion.
