Description Suggest change

Start up a small slab, heading into a very thin steep dihedral. This dihedral is the crux, and may be hard to protect. Climb up thin holds in the dihedral, joining Smitty's Wet Dream after 15' - 20' up. Follow Smitty's to the anchors.

Either rap with one rope (Cranial Prophylactic's anchors), or do CP's second pitch.

Protection Suggest change

Very small gear and one bolt in the slab. A TR is also possible after climbing Cranial Prophylactic or Smitty's Wet Dream, and safer.

Location Suggest change

Lime Line Variation is reached by following the approach to the Perhaps wall, and then following the wall downhill. Pass Cranial Prophylactic, and continue to the next crack system to the left.
