Blanket of Secrecy is the route just right of Pay Homage
Start up a thin crack past three bolts (11c crux) to a large ledge. Here it is possible to spend the night and rest up for the crux bulge. Pulling straight out of the cave is 12b, which you can avoid by moving left to a flake. The upper wall involves a few more crimp moves past two bolts. The crack is a little sharp, but there's not much jamming. It is worth ticking.
6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Blanket of Secrecy was installed by Tod Anderson, Richard Wright and myself just under the wire of the bolt ban, c. 1990. Both me and Richard bungled attempts for the FA, Tod laughed at us and bagged it (like HE needs another).

My first .12 and worth every hangdog I threw at it. The beginning only looks like a crack from afar, but turns out to be nothing but sloping pods filled with wasps. Climb on and you'll find the rest of it to be just as fun, with choice dynos for jugs and awkward cave exits that got me twisted like Gumby. Loved it.
