The first ascent of "Path of Light", 1987.
Climb a steep crack to a low angle slab with three bolts, to a shallow corner.
We originally did this climb in two pitches.
It can be done in one, with a 70m rope.
Draws and cams.

On thug life pro is there when you need it, but the runouts are serious. bring small cams or nuts to protect above the bolts (blue/yellow metolious).
I believe the old trad route Path of Light is between the newer bolted lines California Love, and The Chronic about 50 feet right of Thug Life. The description on this page matches Thug Life, but Blitzo's (RIP) photos of Path of Light clearly show a different line.
