Starts out steep and requires some thoughtful movement to keep your balance and get your feet where your hands are! Crystals and knobs to a sidepull\lieback crux to the 5th bolt. Above the crux you will find the edge of the blade within reach. From there it's 5.8 if you use the edge, 5.10 if you don't. Fairly sustained climbing but there are many nice rests and clipping stances.
From Monster regis. station head west and then up right past Teachers Pet, toward Crystal Ship and Pointy Little Devil. Across gully from P.L.D., follow trail up left then down to C.I.C. area. Route is 15' right of Creature Comforts, about 70-80' before you come to C.I.C.
