Description 

A good sport route that follows a seam and beautiful rock through three distinct cruxes.


Location 

This route starts next to a pointy boulder lying next to the wall. Look for the pretty, steep crack up high with the prominent water streak on the face to the right. This route has a cruxy mantle past the 2nd bolt that is pretty easy to identify.


Protection 

bolts - use a long runner on the 1st bolt.

This thing is the definition of aesthetic climbing. I loved this route. Try to climb this one in cooler temps. When its hot out it feels more like 12d.
