When walking towards the back of the lost crag. This route starts on the right end of the "Chill" area under the roof. 10' right is the start of Vini Vidi Vici. Climb under and up the edge of the Chill roof at its right side, until near the arete, Reach up to a Small left hand edge. Power up a long reach to the pocket (rest) just under the slight overlap. Continue up on thin edges to the top. It is possible to climb this after descending from the Rap station with the Yellow and Purple slings in the tree from on top of this block. Currently one of the hardest lines at the Lost Crag.

3 out of 5 stars Not that brutal for an ape...

Overhanging start with long moves. Crux move is going for the "rest" pocket off of the left arm. Good protection (but very runout) in the horizontal in the middle of the route. Too bad its the only pro and halfway up the route. Not sent on gear. Hopefully this spring! Fun route to work after rapping off this block. Only successful TR'ing this route 2 times in many tries.
