Short climb left of Colors of Emotion. Start on a ramp and fire up right of a crack. A little contrived because the crack is there for the bottom of the route. One throw for the top.


Standard chains at top.

This is not 12a if you avoid the crack, which is the obvious intent of the FA. 12c.

The route seems to "obviously" step off the pedestal where you can clip the 1st bolt.
