Description 

Thin, bouldery, and painful. The route right of Geometric, this is one of those climbs you do once so you can say you did it, and then never do it again.


Protection 

Bolts to chains.

I agree with the original beta above. There are lots of other routes on the crag this one is disentigrating. Every time I grabbed the crux hold (a slopping crimp just before the ancors) there would be less and less of it to grab as it sanded off and became more rounded.
