Blushing Crows has it all: bouldery start, check; classic edges and pockets, check; monos, check; good hands but suprisingly thin feet, check. Start with the initial crimp and layback crux. Head right - Blushing Crows shares the start with White Heat (12d). A couple of moves up and right put you at the big move back left - crux number two. Find the hard to see hold quickly. Solve these riddles and fight the quickly developing pump - battle's end comes at fifth bolt jug.


Located at the bright white streak in the main panel of the wall. Ascends the right variation, splitting after the 1st bolt from White Heat (12d) the left line. The first bolt leaves the rope running over a key hold, you may want to stick clip the low second bolt to solve this problem.


5 bolts to lowering anchor.
