Climb follows up through a dike. Great movement up through the middle.

That green line on the beta photo may or may not be accurate. go find out.

It's a good line.

A small cam for the flake above the 2nd bolt is definitely a good call, but you can get by without one.. Punchy crux leads to superb crystal surfing! This route can be easily TR'd by leading climb-us interuptus (which is also a great line)
