Description Suggest change

Starts about 30 feet uphill from Plasma beneath a shallow left facing corner and crack. Pleasant climbing leads to a bolt at roof. From here, traverse right (strenuously) along underclings before pulling the roof onto the slab above. Clip a second bolt, and move up to a vegetated left angling crack. This leads to a 2 bolt anchor.

Location Suggest change

30 feet uphill from Plasma and 30 feet downhill from Purple Horizons.

Protection Suggest change

A standard rack of camalots .3 to 3 plus a couple draws for the bolts will be plenty. A red TCU or equivalent in between the 2 bolts is key, or just don't fall.
