Plug away at the easy stuff to begin with then move up to where the angle increases and the hold size decrease. Fun and interesting moves with several side pulls and gastons. Crux comes up towards the end with pulls off of small crimps and crystals (hopefully they hold). Good foot work will have you sailing up this route.
Rumor has it that a second pitch was planned but never completed. Anchors have been established at the top, but no route as of now.
This route is the third line going from right to left on the main face of the Crystal Wall. Just to the right of Tour de Poudre.
11 bolts and anchors with two fixed carabiners (yea!).

A hard move at the top bulge is the crux, find a couple of match stick crimps to move through.

The route breaks down like this: first third - 5.6 staircase, second third - fun 5.9ish moves, last third - 5.10c crux section on crystals. Will feel tricky if you're gunning for the onsight. Not nearly as consistent as its neighbor to the left.
