Description

Aesthetic movement, beautiful holds, and an element of danger define this problem. Starts on the right side of the chasm on the same nice blocky hold as art isn't real. Follows the leaning crystal band through some crimping which culminates in a hard reach to a jug. From here the problem starts to diverge from the crystal band, crimping out left to get a high foot and make a tricky rock over right to a blocky sloper that remains after a jug was pulled off. This move is a little off the deck and the danger of slamming the wall behind is real, so act deliberately. From the sloper head straight up through improving holds until you can grab the chickenhead over the lip and top out the rig. Woo!

Location

On the right side of Ronald's chasm, shares the large blocky start hold with Lily of the Valley but moves left along the crystal band, and then leaves crystal band early to climb straight up.
Similar on number 3 on Matt's topo, but diverges to head straight up after the jug instead of leaning leftwards.

Protection

Pads, a good spot, not falling high up
