Description

Begin to the right of Apparition. Climb up 50' of discontinuous cracks with some loose rock to a sloping ledge. Continue up another 10', then traverse up and left along crux hand crack (.75 cam helpful) to join last 5' of Apparition. Belay from slung block.

Descent: scramble to climber's left down gully. In my opinion, the last 30' of the route warrants a 2- star rating, but the lower section is not too memorable, so overall a one star route, especially when compared to Apparition.

Pro to 2" (.75 cam helpful for crux)

The crux section of this is a really nice crack with good moves. Star quality detracted a bit by the blocky moves down low, but a worthwhile route. Mar 20, 2011

Led this for the first time couple of wknds ago. Didn't have guidebook along. Went up the steep and juggy face of Mosaic Wall bec that looked the most enticing, connecting to the highlight finger crack traverse of Cosmosis. Both lower and upper sections were very enjoyable, done that way. Btw, the long fin inside the high traversing crack actually moves, as in gear placed in the upper or lower crack created by that fin wouldn't hold much of a lead fall, and one wouldn't realize until at the upper end of that fin where it moves the most. Bit of extra spice. Apr 7, 2011
