Past the crux and into the splitter. Photo by Ada...
Soaked in Sin is both bouldery and sustained. The rock down low isn't pretty, but the climbing is fun and the rock gets better and better. Stick clip the first bolt, and crux your way past 4 bolts in to an off width pod that. Find a trick rest, clip one more bolt, then enjoy the steep fingers to thin hands crack to the chains. Note for cleaning: Be careful unclipping the 1st bolt if you trammed in as you will be taking a violent swing toward a tree. The best option is to bring a stick clip that allows you to retrieve your draw from the ground like the superclip or the squid. This allows you to tram in cleaning everything but the first bolt, then "tram"out out and down to the ground in a controlled manner. Then all you need to do is use the stick clip to retrieve the draw on the first bolt.
5 bolts, single rack from 0.3-#2 with doubles from .4-.75. This route was originally done with 3 bolts, but the gear in the offwidth section was never confidence inspiring due to the fractured nature of the rock.
