Rave

Description 

A tuff bouldering classic: powerful, yet technical, and immensely satisfying. Grab the pumice banana and a small right crimp and pull a couple steep moves to the big sloper. Keep it tight for a radical sequence through the large dish to a gaston, and finally, a baseball-sized pocket and the huge shelf. Beautiful.

(Word has it the starting pinch and a crucial foot have been steadily disintegrating over time, so step lightly and/or get this done quick.)

Location 

In the Slow Dance Cave, this takes a pretty obvious line from the banana hold up and slightly left. The high class 4 topout is not essential but sure makes getting off the boulder easier.

Protection 

A couple pads and a spot for the crux - the landing is very good.

Between being abused by wire brushes, damaged with pof and general slow decay - the start of this problem has gone from being stiff V5 to unpleasant V6.

It's really no longer worth doing.
