Description 

This amazing climb starts just to the left of the Bloody Beet Roots arete. The route climbs the sheer, blank looking wall on small crimps right up the center of the cleanest section of wall just left of the obvious arete. The route basically boils down to a hard boulder problem after clipping the second bolt and then immediately goes into another harder crimpy boulder problem after clipping the third bolt. After the small roof enjoy the relatively mellow romp to the anchor.

Crimpy with a few powerful moves, technical feet. A Connecticut classic.

4 star line, and feels pretty hard for this grade either way. probably 13a if youre under 5'8 or so. I am around 5'10 with a -2 ape index and can BARELY reach the crux hold in full lock off. Reachy moves on some of the coolest holds I have grabbed. This route reminds me of Kundalini in Rumney but without a kneebar in the crux.
