Description 

P1: Begin climbing up P2 of Ecstasy but where Ecstasy begins to traverse up and right, continue up and left using the wide crack/chimney and blocky holds to reach the large Ecstasy Jr/Burn ledge.

An interesting little variation and a good way to move off Ecstasy or link-up to the EJ Ledge. A little steep at first, but it quickly eases off once you move up the wide crack.

Location 

From the belay atop P1 of Ecstasy.

Finish up P2 of Ecstasy Jr or rappel from the rings on the tree. If you rap with a 60m rope you will barely make it to the base of the Burn with rope-stretch. Tie knots in the ends before you throw it over!!!

Protection 

Standard Seneca rack. A #4 BD cam or similar size gear is helpful.
