Description 

Stick clipping the first bolt ain't a bad idea... Climb thin edges up and left to an arete. Work the arete up to an overlap. Climb through the overlap using edges, pockets and flakes until the climbing turns balancy before clipping the anchors to finish.


Location 

On an arete right before Fanfair.


Protection 

Bolts, anchor and stick clip.

Bouldery start, mossy texture, and balancy/spicy final move make this a challenging lead for the new 5.9 leader.
