Traverses the obvious horizontal line of big holds across the entire Rhetorick Wall for a perfectly balanced endurance run, basically no cruxes I could find. The best route on the wall by far. PG rated only for the 2nd, risking down-and-left swing fall onto Talk It Up's ledge. To manage this safely, don't unclip bolt 5 until you've traversed past (left of) it, likely pulling a little rope to do that. Then reach right to unclip. Belayer takes up that slack and your swing fall will be shorter. Beta spoiler.........................................................kneebar the cave, because you can.

5 out of 5 stars best route on the wall; probably best route near Deadcats

Jug City! I've travelled some of these holds on the uproutes, so this was a virtual flash. Rona talked me down from 10c.
