Start just to the left of Stormin Norman in a large left facing recess. Stem up 20 feet then make some chimney moves out the first roof. Traverse left and climb up a move or two then traverse back right (airy) to rejoin the main chimney system for the remainder of the route.

5 out of 5 stars Holy Sh1t!

Probably one of the most exciting routes at T-Wall. There is no less than five roofs to pull and each one has its own set of hidden holds. When you get lowered off the anchors you are 40+ feet BEHIND your belayer, that is how much it overhangs. Plenty of good gear, jugs, and jams when you need them make this one an esoteric classic for sure!
