4 out of 5 stars Excellent route with a couple variations

This route resides on the north end of the Camel Wall. It is just left of J-Bean, which is marked by a yellow, '47.' At the start is a slight bulge. This connects to a very clean, left arching flake. This flake terminates at a roof. The original version of this route (as I was told) continued right of this roof, through easier climbing. However, a more fun (and 5.9) variation is to ascend the crack in the roof and continue up the face past two bolts to the fixed anchor. Excellent route!

2 out of 5 stars =0

one of my earliest ascents at Nemo, we were still learning how to place pro on the lead and we did not trust any of our pieces we used the old capital rule of the leader must NOT fall, when I arrived to the overhang, I was only 3 or 4 ft out from my last piece, and start to get so scared looking around at the exposure, and so it happens. I asked my self : WATH A F...CK AM I DOING HERE!!

A disturbing lack of pro on the headwall. Positron right is a better option.
