Description

Most use this route to access Pranayama and other hard climbs on the ceiling, but if you're looking for a fun romp up the cave wall at a mellow grade, this is it. Start off on easy climbing, thinking you're getting away with an easy 5.11 until very steep climbing awaits you a bolt or two before the chains. Enjoy the cool tufas and jugs on this one.

Location

Starts above the Clarity Cave on the upper tier, step right and clip the first draw, then trend straight up and take the right hand line to a set of chains hanging in the ceiling above.

Protection

bolts to a lower off.
