DescriptionThis one starts in the same place as Midnight Dreamer, but promptly moves left via technical climbing on a ledge. The climbing then goes straight up, on thin, sharp, crimps to a small overlap. Ease your tips in the wonderfully smooth pocket, then launch through the overlap into the bullet hard patina. Trend right to a ledge, then over a final short headwall.
Still needs some cleaning, but this is easily the best route on the wall. A number of people have commented that it is reminiscent of a easy Rap Bolters are Weak.
