Description Suggest change

Located on the light-colored face just left of the red buttress of Crimpson Candy. Starts on the small left-facing flake, with balancey moves to the first bolt. The crux occurs around the 6th bolt on thin holds. Moving left seemed more obvious, but using edges to the right seemed easier. Jog slightly left at the last bolt for a quick layback to the anchors.

A decent route that seemed more technical than many 5.10s at Cactus. The attached picture lists the route at 5.10b, Rick Thompson's guide gives it 5.10b/c, and I'll go with 5.10b/c to 5.10c. It's a good thing ratings are subjective.
