DescriptionA pumpy, slightly overhanging, pocket- and jug-haul for the first two-thirds of the route, a thin crux, then pockets and jugs to the anchor chains.
From the ground, this route looks easier than the 5.9 (Vaporous Apparition) to its right. The climbing up to the fourth bolt is mostly big limestone pockets and jugs. However, the crux section between the fourth and fifth bolts lacks any pockets or jugs and the handholds are reduced to a couple of sharp crimps and polished pinches plus a couple of key sidepulls.
