Description 

There was mention of this route under the description for Lucy. Has a bouldery 12b start and a very exciting 12c finish on a delicate powerful face. Very pretty.


Location 

This route is to the right of Mastodont, the steep 13c to the far left of cave with 3 fixed clips in the middle or to the left of Lucy. Can finish upper section of Lucy after you pull the second roof if hard face climbing is not your style.


Protection 

13 +/- bolts. I just left 2 new biners on the anchor.

The moves through the bottom section of this climb are SO much fun, and then the face climbing up top really makes you think. If you want to avoid the upper face climbing, I would recommend doing the lower section and finishing up on Lucy (that linkup is called "Evolucy"). It doesn't create as much rope drag as you might expect.
