A harder, lower-quality variation to Crystal Catch. However, this well-protected and relatively powerful pitch is a nice change of pace from the slabby climbs to its left.

Start about 10 meters right of CC, at a boulder-sized chockstone wedged in the chimney. Surmount the chockstone, then head straight left into cruxy underclinging and jamming until the crack turns vertical, eventually joining CC. Gear should be placed at close intervals during the traverse since a ledge and the ground are still pretty close at this point.


Standard Lumpy rack up to #3 Camalot.
