Description 

This is a shorter, easier variation of The Quickening which allows you to skip the skin shredding boulder problem start and enjoy the stellar moves and perfect rock at the top.

Standing on the boulders to the left of The Quickening, grab a small left hand edge, make a couple of moves to a jug, and continue to the top of The Quickening.

This is bit harder than Psychatomic but way more approachable than the rest of the lines on the Vestibule.

Location 

Start just left of The Quickening on some boulders. Look for a decent left hand edge and a good left foot.

Protection 

Stick clip the third and fourth draws on The Quickening. Bring a long stick clip!

No bolts were added for this variation.
