Start up at small block below shallow seam up. Work up and left on cimps to cruxy slopers. Move a bit left then up to the crack on Std.


Middle of the back wall on the Yosemite Boulder, just left of old bolt ladder.


Pads, spotter

This problem has 3 names - the original name from the FA was Rainbow Mist. It was renamed Keep It Subtle when it was cleaned and reclimbed a couple of years ago by Brett. Then there's the name that got made up for the guidebook. Jul 22, 2010

Does this start on the ground or does it start off the 2' high block on the right of the small dihedral? I saw it done from both but from the ground feels significantly harder. Oct 25, 2010

Starts on the ground to the left of the block. I use a low (waist height) left hand sidepull, a good left toe, and a right hand on the seam. Oct 25, 2010

This is so fricking hard, I haven't sent yet and it's way out of my style, but if you told me any grade for the climb I'd probably agree with you. Super fun to work, so beta intensive. Hope it feels better in good conditions. Jul 23, 2015

C'mon Ian, a v11 climber should be able to do this easily! It's not particularly friction dependent. You just have to be willing to stand on your feet. I'll trade you my technique for your power if you're interested. :) Jul 23, 2015

I won't be a v11 climber until I do Halcyon =)

Think i'll just steal your technique instead. . . Jul 23, 2015

Awesome climb!! One of the best slabs in Pway and IMO the best v5 in the park. Also, it is ALWAYS dry.
