Description 

Begin by standing on a detached block and climbing through a series of tiny, interesting knobs and crystals. This route is all about standing on your feet and being imaginative with your hold selection. Near the chains, the rock type changes and with it so does the climbing style. This climb has interesting and consistent movement throughout. You would be hard pressed to climb it exactly the same twice!

Location 

This is on the right side of a shorter slab, left of 'The Guillotine'.

Protection 

Six liberally spaced bolts and chains.
