This varied line starts just to the right of Djols. Pull a couple moves to a gaping break, then navigate a spatial sequence between a small tufa and a large one.

The leftmost route in Area 4, starts to the right of Djols, between a large tufa and a small tufa just right of it.
5 bolts, 2 thread-through slings, ring anchors at the top.
