Description 

Climb the easy looking crack all the way to the bolted anchors... Though it is 5.6 you might find that it makes you think a little... the crux is roughly in the middle and involves jamming an some precise foot work...

Protects well...


Location 

Look for the flat topped boulder in front of a nice corner split by a crack roughly in the center of the cliff... Calypso II climbs this crack...


Protection 

Normal rack to wide hand sized cams... bolt anchor...

Fun line with that little balance move in the center. If you want, run it all passive, it takes stoppers well and some hexes up top. Watch for the loose blocks up top.

Fun warm up. Awkward placement for the anchors.
