Pretty good route. The first pitch consists of a short offwidth, then a traverse onto a nice handcrack. Follow the handcrack up, then traverse right under a roof to nice holds. Belay a little past the trees using natural anchors. The second pitch is excellent, but short. Belay at the anchors for Snowflake and Plasma.


This route starts just to the right of bloodline and traverses quite a ways right. Rap from Snowflake and Plasma anchors.


Regular trad rack works. BD C4 0.6 - 3.
