Description 

Every bit as good as Jete to its left, dancer shares the slab on the far left side of the Christian Brothers. Fun knobby climbing past plenty of bolts makes for a fun easy lead.

As with Jete this route sees an endless amount of traffic.

Protection 

7 bolts with a bolted anchor

Fun route with a crux getting established on the face above the little ramp.

The first bolt, as well as the moves for the first 8 feet, appears to be shared with Jete (route to climber's left of Dancer)

This route was originally put up on lead (didn't rappel to place the bolts). We used a hand drill over two weekends to complete it. It was fairly clean with very little loose rock. The 1st bolt is so high because I needed a small ledge, hands free to stand on to drill the 1st bolt. It a great little route that a lot of climbers have enjoyed. I did the 1st ascent with my old friend John Tyreman, we also put up climbed Revelations together.

Hey Tim, it looks like some bolt count has been added to the route. There is a bolt that can be reached basically from the ground now. I suppose it protects a leader a 4 foot fall getting on the route, but seems rather odd for an area that you're likely bringing a stick clip anyway.

Bolts beyond this and anchors have been replaced with nice glue ins.
