No real crux, just a nice balancy, traverse upwards.


Starts to the left of the cave, you work your way diagonally across the face pulling up over the triangle of rock from Michael's mysery.


Use the same rope you did for tires and gas, and Michael's Mysery.

Based on Ferguson's 1978 guidebood, this is not Valsalva Maneuver but rather a variant of it called Tits. Valsalva Maneuver, after a few diagonal moves, goes more or less straight up the center of the face and is rated by Ferguson at 5.9.
Valsalva Maneuver may be the same route as the one listed as the Cornell College Club Climb. May 20, 2014
