Description

Crystal Staircase is one of my favorite routes at Harmels because of its unique beauty. It is the quite stellar band of crystals that sweeps up and left from the base of Tony's Tango and ends at the chains where Toys and Left Hand converge. The transition from the top of the staircase and into the cracks leading to the anchors is the somewhat heady crux.

Location

Start the same as Tony's Tango, then veer up and right following the crystal band.

Protection

The pro is sparse but sufficient with a good eye for pro. This is probably not a good lead for a beginner, but it is an awesome toprope for anyone.
