Just right of Versatile Universe is a big detatched pillar leaning against the main wall, which you must walk under to get to the rest of the routes. While between the wall and pillar in the "hallway", climb the handcrack in the main wall, using the leaning boulder for support where needed. Top out on the boulder and rap from fixed gear (recommended) or continue on the runout face and top out. 65ft. (40ft. if you bail ontop of the boulder)
Descent: Rap from fixed gear
Stays Dry:
Owner: NFS
Steepness:

MY partner and I climbed this route in 1987 and found a hex welded in the crack near the top of the boulder, never reported this. We also did the pebbley crack next to it all the way to the top.

Thanks Tim, I always wondered about that. I always thought someone would have done it before me since it is such an obvious line at such a popular crag. I asked around but no one seemed to know anything about it.

would be a much better route if it had anchors higher on the wall, instead of that fixed junk.

Has anchors, no fixed gear in sight
