Description 

This variation of Polyester Leisure Suit starts 2-3m to the right of PLS and climbs interesting features that trend right through the overhang.

Start with a knuckle jam in the "fin" for a few body lengths of gymnastic trad protected climbing to the small fir tree where it intersects with PLS. This is much more interesting climbing than PLS, trad protected (tricky to place on lead?) at about the same grade.


Location 

Few meters right of PLS where a fin sticks out of the bottom of the same roof. Rappel off the tree at the top of PLS.


Protection 

The crux took a #1 C3, #0 C3, and medium stopper in the v-slot before the sloper finish.
