Description 

Thinky and thin with some great movement to gain clipping stances, follow the obvious bolt line up and over the bulge down low to gain a series of committing edges to the top.


Location 

Route is the first bolt line right of the obvious wide crack on the wall (Total Darkness - 5.7)


Protection 

3 bolts - chains at the top

Be gentle on the the flake! It flexes.

Thin edges over a bulge at the start gain a stance below some hollow flakes which must be utilized as you move up and left on runout but easy jugs to the anchors. It's possible to cheat at the start by going left into the crack but why would you do that?

Def. missing some flakes by the second bolt, guessing this was the undercling at one point.
