Description 

Oxygen Masks and Float Cushions is a fairly long pitch with some good sections of climbing and some surprisingly awkward moves. The pitch is somewhat untraveled and still has lichen on it but would clean up more with time. This is the most solid pitch on this crag but lacks the great climbing that is found on Aviatrix.

Start 7 meters left of the start of Flight Attendant, climbing up and left below a roof into a crack system. Continue up and slightly left towards a few bushes in the crack. At the first bush, you can easily pass with no real problem by going right. Traverse up and right on a good finger traverse into a crack system a few meters right of the bush. Once in this crack, head up and very slightly right into a crack through a small bulge with good gear and good jams for a final crux before continuing directly up to the large belay tree.


Location 

Start 7 meters left of the start of Flight Attendant, climbing up and left below a roof into a crack system.


Protection 

A standard rack to 3" and optional 4" piece (can be placed, but don't need it) and a few longer slings for the wandering parts of the climb.

Go around the bush however you can unless you really like having relations with shrubbery (although to be honest, it was probably the crux).
