This route climbs a crack system on the East Face of Venus.


The route starts in the center of the east face, then follows a thin crack that slowly widens until it is an offwidth at the top of the tower.


Thin pins to start, then many cams that gradually get bigger. Some oversized cams are very helpful at the top.
