Description

The full crystal band line. Start on the right side of chasm on blocky hold (same start as Lily of the valley and art isn't real) and follow the nice crystal band up and left through a harder low crux, catch a quick rest and do a French blow for style points before busting the easier but spookier high crux exiting straight up from the top of the crystal band.

Location

The obvious line on the boulder, climbs the left angling crystal band

Protection

Pads and not falling, a rope to suspend a pad on the slab behind you will help protect the high crux. I was an idiot and somehow managed to fall here once after underestimating the line as soft choss that totally goes in direct sunlight and lived to tell the tale. Not recommended though.

One of the best I've climbed in the Gulch. Bring many pads, including large pads, and the hard climbing is pretty safe.
