Same start as Etude, but instead of moving right to the middle thin crack, continue up the leftmost crack up to a thin fingertip lieback crux protected by two bolts, finishing at the 2-bolt Etude belay stance. (35-meter rappel)


Very thin to 2.5 inches.

Pretty cool and natural line.. TR'd it, but it'd be a safe lead. Wondering if the original route went straight up past the 2nd bolt, staying true to the seam (hard and a bit dirty), or escaped out left (felt reasonably natural, but not as proud). May 4, 2018

My notes say at the second bolt I moved left to another crack, which is followed up and right to the 2-bolt belay shared with Etude. (35-meter rappel).

12a between the first and second bolt. May 6, 2018
I hopped on this a few years ago. While on lead I wondered which way I was going to go above the bolts. But once I got up there it felt obvious, and natural to move a bit left to the crack and head on up to the Etude belay. May 6, 2018
