Cirque du Soleil
BETA PHOTO: Midnight Rock, left side.
A. The Cage 9+ R, gear....
Diagonal left past three bolts to the arete (12 c) and a rest. Very pure and clean arete climbing (12b) takes you past four more bolts to the anchor. Tricky, sustained climbing from start to finish.
This is the furthest left sport climb on Midnight Rock.
About seven bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

A couple of holds looked like they may perhaps have been chipped or enhanced. I hope this is not the case, since it's otherwise a great climb.

Toproped the moves on a direct start (from the right) that avoids the enhanced holds, and also figured out a sequence passing bolts three and four that avoids two more enhanced holds. Would be a letter grade or two harder if done this way.

The new, unaltered version looks very nice indeed.
