Description 

A very long and sustained route, no gimme for the grade. pull the first bulge to a good rest under the roof, then step left using the finger crack in the roof to continue up the face Pull through multiple cruxes, with another small roof towards the very top. Well protected and very fun. A 70 m is a must to TR, or bring 2 60 m ropes and rappel off.

Location 

Located to the left of the brick, and right of uncontrollable desire. starts below a roof and an obvious bombay.

Protection 

Lots of quickdraws (around 15?), chain anchors.

More than 12 draws. I didn't count but I'd bring 15 to be safe

One of the must-dos in the canyon. Feels 11b when you first do it. Good endurance test. Requires a 70m for lower to the ground, else rap/lower to BRIK top anchors, pull and go down from there.
