Tony starting up Calypso.

Description 

Stick clip the first and second bolts (if you wish), and begin the climb with a few technical moves to get you established onto the face, followed by a tricky move over a bulge. At this point, rest up for the top moves on the beautiful headwall. This route is likely easier for taller individuals as the crux felt quite reachy even for a guy that's 5'11". The final moves felt slightly run out, but safe. Finish through some large jugs before the anchors.

The route was quite slimy when we were there as we sat through a rain storm before getting on this route. Fortunately most of the holds were more sharp than slopey and the route was still quite do-able.

Location 

Follow the directions to Neptune's Lair. This route is the furthest right.

Protection 

7 TITANIUM bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
