Description 

This is more of a variation to the start than anything else. Instead of traversing to the initial crack on pitch one, this climbs directly up the face of the large boulder/flake leaning against the wall. In reality, it's a boulder problem, since there is no pro available at all.


Location 

This is to the right of the base of the normal Calypso route.


Protection 

None.

This is the ONLY way I've ever done Calypso, and although I've rated it as a PG-13, it's more of just an ankle breaker than anything else, should one slip here.
