Jade Feather climbs the system left of Nyctophiliac. Begin on a steep and featured face left of Nycto, pulling big moves on flat edges protected by bolts, for about 45 feet, then mantle up onto a small ledge. From here commit to the overhanging flare to the left. Enter the Jade Feather, a beautiful dihedral on a prominent arete hanging over the canyon. Burl through the flare and tech-stem your way to the top once the flare opens. Top out straight up a blobby face 10'left of the Nycto drainage.


Begin 15 feet left of Nycto.


Belay anchor takes hand sized cams
Bring gear from 000 c3 to #4 camalot. Extra fingers to hands gear plus runners and quickdraws.

Above the crux is a 25-foot funout on insecure 5.11 climbing. The gear below this section is some bomber cams in a horizontal, and the fall should be clean....
