Description 

The start is similar to most of the routes in this sector and it is sandy and loose. The crux comes as you approach the 4th bolt. From here, hold on and make big moves to reach the jugs. A little harder than Looking for Yesterday.

Location 

Located on the left sector of the Damascus Wall. Shares a start with Looking for Yesterday.

Protection 

6 bolts, chains.

This one is really fun, and pretty clean, with harder moves but better rests than "Yesterday." I thought the crux was linking the first bolt to the third, after which the holds get better.
