Slopey sidepulls

Description 

The second bolted line from the start of the slab, Tie Die was a rather easy 5.10. The book calls it a 5.10c, I will drop that down to 5.10b. The lower half was fun and technical. The upper half was easy and lichen covered. Hence the 1 star. Still not a bad route for the Millstone area. The crux wa an awkward sidepull around bolt 2/3.

Location 

Second bolted line from the bottom. Rappel from the anchors.

Protection 

5 draws and 2 more for the chains.

I thought this was funky with lame movement and an rounded holds when you'd like sharp ones. The crux was that high step crank past the second bolt. Save this for the last route you do at the Millstone...or never do it.
