Julie high up on Child of Light, 5.9


Stellar pumpy vertical face with a distinct crux up high.


8 bolts (one has been added recently to protect the start)

The scene of much ungodly flailing as people tend to throw their beginner friends off the deep end here.

Great photo ops of the upper part of this pitch from the anchors of Sendero Luminoso.

Great climb. After the half way point it is fairly constant with a killer final sequence passed the last bolt up to the anchors.
