Very fitting name, little crystal features save the day on some of the moves! Sometimes it almost feels more like face climbing then slab. Found the first pitch a bit confusing, still don't know if we went up the right line or not, trended right over textured terrain and placed one piece before shooting straight up to the anchors on P1.
Fantastic Stone moderate, a must do for any aspiring slabber!

|This route goes up left of Great white way. Start on left side of apron, up to bolted anchor below the navel. I think working around this navel and left is the tricky part. The runouts are big, but is is stone mountain. I climbed it in 2000 so my memory is not that good.|
