Description 

Climb the flake just right of the start of Vision. Follow the crack system all the way to the top of the wall and rappel from a tree or over Kentucky Pinstripe. You can escape left onto Vision in a couple of places.


Location 

Just right of Vision. Start from the same ledge.


Protection 

You need smaller stuff for the start. If you don't have Aliens or small TCUs then it might feel a little R-rated.

Lower part takes passive protection as well.

Oh man, if I was a 5.7 leader trying this I would pee in my pants. I thought there were a couple thin/unprotected reachy 5.9 moves. 20 feet up. The rest is trivial.
