Begin a few feet left of Meteor Fall. Ease up and left around the arete, then work up a face to a ledge. Surge over a bulge near an old and dubious bolt to a stance under an overhang. Blast over this to another ledge, step left, then summit or plummet!
Bring a variety of technical pieces and some fairy dust.

I toproped this line in '76 and got it on the first try. Then tried to lead it a week or so later, but took a nasty fall and hit a ledge real hard. Didn't try it again until '83, then bagged the FA with Martin Hackworth following. This route really was a dream realized.

One more note. The bolt was dubious when I placed it in '76. The supposedly 3/8 inch drill bit was oversized, so the bolt was loose from day one, though it held a fall! When I returned in '83 the hanger was all but rusted away.

Finally, the route should get an R/X rating, though I guess that's pretty obvious, what with the word play in the name and all.

I meant "supposedly 5/16" drill bit)
