Venus Which is Green (aka Disposition Crevice)

Easy moves up the corner lead to a solitary bolt, which protects a thin face traverse (reachy move) out left to jugs. Easier moves follow and lead to the anchors.
Originally climbed without any bolts, another party came along (in 1989) thinking the route unclimbed and added the bolt and anchors, which is how it now stands. This climb offers a nice blend of crack and face climbing in a somewhat secluded area. Two stars out of five.
Around the corner from the striking arete of Split Personality is this left-facing corner system which thins and leads to face climbing.
pro to 2.5", bolt, anchors (all 3/8")

Useless trivia - the name "Venus Which Is Green" comes from the the Jimi Hendrix song Voodoo Chile (at 2:43 in), which is on the Electric Ladyland album.

Last few finger locks harder if your fingers tend toward the big end. PG in Barlett which doesn't seem to make sense.

The PG rating makes sense to me. I fell at the top of the crack, pulled a small cam, and almost fell on my belayer, who ducked just in time. It's a great route, though. As always, make sure you back up small gear and use decent-sized runners, especially this close to the ground.
