Description

So don't you give up now ... so easy to find ... just look to your soul ... and open your mind.

Crystal Blue Persuasion generally traverses the slab and overlaps from right to left crossing the bottom of the large, black water streak.

P1:140',10c- Steps left past the large overlap and arcs to the comfy belay ledge.
P2:70',8- Up the short dihedral and pad left.
P3:80',10a- Follow thin, flared crack, step over the short overlap, and surmount the improbable corner roof crack above.
P4:80',10a- Zig zag right, back left, then up. Keep an eye out for the blue crystals on the last pitch.

Location

Approach the climb from right using slabby ledge system. Starting belay anchors located 100' left and 50' below the 10-foot wide cave located at the base of the wall.

Protection

Bolts, small gear to hands, all bolted belay anchors. Descend by scrambling down major gully (some exposure) on NW side of tower and contouring along the base East and then South to return to the cave.
