Description 

A nice warm-up for the area offering gradually steeper climbing until the crux at the top which takes good holds out a swell of rock. Make sure to unclip the last bolt when lowering to prevent your rope from getting pinched in the "vee" and trashing it unduly.


Location 

Shares the first four bolts with Tangerine Dream then splits left to a shared anchor with Adrenaline.


Protection 

9 bolts, ring anchors

Easy enjoyable climbing leads you quickly to the steep finish. Once the last bolt is clipped push on quickly passed the crux before your strength runs out - the holds above the crux are good, but a fall from just below the anchors would not be pretty.

One short crux section makes this an 5.11. Progressively more difficult climb starts 5.8 and moves up from there. Shares the anchor with Adrenaline if you want to work on it.

Holds on the roof are there, just pull and work your way over. The feet are out to the left. 11-ish crux.
