Continued from Ancient Fright, this adds on a trad extension to the summit directly going up and ever-so-slightly right in cracks and pockets to add up to 45 meters of climbing. The belay on top is cord on large boulders and a tricam.
The route has a few cracks dug out for pro, and the rock is mostly solid, but expect lichen and dirt here and there. While not terribly dirty, it has not been cleaned by any stretch of the imagination.
The name of this route is a reference to being half blind. After doing P1 of Ancient Fright, I could not see where Resurrection went, so I simply continued directly up the face past the anchors, going another 80 feet or so to a sub-summit, perhaps 13 meters right of Resurrection. This passes a smaller pine tree and then a larger one, climbing with both just to your right.
The route was done on a single run of cams to 3" and a red tricam, but it could certainly take more gear.

You gave this a star!? Haha! I'm sure in time it could clean up into one. Not bad moves or bad rock, just presently very dirty.
