This is a so-so climb with some moderate runouts, but the ledges make them more 'interesting'. While there is no real crux for the average climber (if you are tall enough), the final arete might be more difficult for anyone shorter than 5'9". A key pocket could be out of reach.
Just left of Christal Ball a flat face of rock with some intermittent cracks and seams gives way to a stack of rocks (one big bulge protrudes, 12 meters up), up over the blocks via the left side, then up the face and arete just barely left of the final bolt on Christal Ball to the top. One can also choose to belay or lower from the Christal Ball anchors.
A light rack of cams and nuts, Tricams or Aliens down low.
