Variation climbs a distinct line midway between Boogaloo and the water marks that define the body of the Dark Angel. It is a fairly straight-forward and sustained climb on thin holds that eases up considerably after surmounting the right shoulder of the Angel. Belay from the anchors at the start of Let it Bleed. Climbers can then continue up Let it Bleed, the Left Flake or Right Flake. A 60m rope gets you close enough to the ground on rappel but a 70m is needed for top-rope.


4 bolts, bolted anchor.
