This route climbs the left side of This Is your Brain, the slabby face down and right of Ripple Tower. Follow approach trail up gully and cut left. Scramble up 3rd class slabs to a gear belay at base of the route. The climb begins with a 10m long layback and jam crack then traverses out on a natural rail to gain excellent face holds and bolted climbing leading to the top. The last bolt, 3m from the top, has a hangerless bolt next to it because it was the original station. You need a 35m to lower off but can rap with a 30m because of the way the route zigzags.
