Veaz truckin through the crux of Shocking.

Description 

This is a steep climb on horizontal crimps. It is excellent and much more sustained than The Gift or Where the Down Boys Go. The crux consists of a few radical pulls of ok crimps. If you don't manage to clip the last bolt 'cause you're pumped, and then fall, you go for the big dive...

Location 

start as for the glitch, then straight up. the right most route except for the glitch

Protection 

QD's are in place + Anchors at the top.

Good power crimping. Last 2 bolts were hard to clip for me. Skip the last and keep it together for the last moves.

Was harder for me then Twilight of a Champion or Ambushed.
