Description Suggest change

Have you ever tried The Virus and just couldn't successfully fight it? Well, you can do a variation that is less finger-threatening (still hurts 11 days later).

Start about 6-7 feet left of the first bolt. You can get a #0.75 Camalot/orange Alien in right off the ground if you want. You can move up and gain the slopey horizontal. Note, if you use the grungy chimney or back step, it will feel 5.9. If not, 10-. Green & yellow Aliens fit. Step right to the big starting hold for The Virus. You can clip the 2nd bolt. Traverse to the arete. Continue up as for The Virus past 2 bolts. An optional #8 BD wire (or possibly a red Alien) fits above the last bolt, if you want. Rap.

Location Suggest change

This is to the right of Lemons, Limes, and Tangerines; Big Dihedral, and the unnamed Face.

Protection Suggest change

3 QDs for the 2nd/3rd/4th bolts, #0.75 Camalot, green & yellow Aliens, #8 BD wire (or red Alien), something for the anchor.
