Located between Banana Breath and Yardarm. Start on Yardarm and at the first bolt head up instead of following Yardarm. There will be two more bolts before reaching the belay. The two anchor belay is just to the left of the flake on Yardarm. Head up to the first bolt on Yardarm that is after the belay at the flake and follow Yardarm to the top. This is a slab route with virtually no gear opportunities other than the bolts. There are many mini ledges to use for holds, similar to Mercury's Lead.

Descent Options:

Walk-off from the top or there are several nice rappel lines that will require two ropes.

4 out of 5 stars Moderately Fun Lead

Lead all pitches to the top. This route provides an excellent slab lead but it is very similar to many of the other routes in the section of rock between The Great Arch and No Alternative. I have seen other climbers top-roping this route but it seems a bit too easy for this style of climbing. There were ample mini ledges to follow between the bolts. The rock was of excellent quality until connecting with Yardarm and its loose crystals.
