photon torpedo in action.

Description 

A sustained mega-classic. Crimp your way up the center of the face, pulling a small "roof" and continuing up a juggy face.

Once the crimping starts, expect to keep on crimping for a couple of bolts before it lets up.


Location 

Center of the West face of the Crystal.


Protection 

9 bolts + mussy's.

Sure feels A LOT easier than Mandarin Orange on The Great Wall of China, but maybe that's cause I'm tall and have fat sausages for fingers.
