Chris starting Prima Nocta.

Description 

Start several feet left of The Baroque Period.

Start with using the flake on the left and the face on the right to gain C1. On top of the flake, go straight up on big holds to a stance at C3. This next slightly harder section gets you moving up on some reachy good holds then a great lefty pocket to more big holds for 3 more clips to a spacious ledge. Jog left to clip C7, and then step right and continue straight up on a great flake then great edges/pockets and finally some sharp rock to the chains.

Location 

This is in between The Baroque Period & Period Epic.

Protection 

11 clips to anchors.

Felt like a series of boulder problems between easier moves.

The climb goes up a broken area with some loose rock.

Was harder for my 5'0" girlfriend...a bit reachy at a few of the cruxes.
