Description 

This route uses the first bolt from "Amanda" but then fades right, achieves a ledge, past two more bolts of vertical face climbing, through the notch to a few more bolts on a devious slab.

Not too terribly difficult but the route cultivates a taste for the awkward on the obvious-looking, bigger moves.

But after clipping the last bolt, it's some awkward feet balancing and nuance on slab. Found it frightening (but that last bolt, from your knees, cheers you on smilingly.)

Do the route while you climb Amanda and Elixer, it will make you think.


Protection 

Two bolt anchor at the top (the left hanger was a tad loose as of my ascent).

Not too much gear is needed - a small rack of cams and handful of draws.
