Description 

Crux is stepping off the rail near bolt 3(?). Crux is definitely well protected, but the rest of the route is VERY run-out. Be comfortable soloing 5.8. Use the small cam for a crack in the roof 15' above the crux.

Use long runners to minimize rope drag.

Location 

To the right of Crystalline Passage and directly below an obvious crystalline formation.

Protection 

4? Bolts. one .4-.5 BD cam. A few long slings

None of the moves on this route seemed harder than about 5.8+ (way easier than Crystalling Passage next door). Pretty runout though. Take small cams (0.3 to 0.4 range) to place before pulling around the roof at top. Fun climb and worth doing if in the area.
