Description

Avoid the corner chimney and start to it's left. A couple of easy un protected face moves to gain a splitter hand crack for 40 feet (5.9). From here step onto the Spectrum tower proper and climb the crack past the "sentry box" (10c) and up to the bulge. Clip the bolt and move up and right (crux) into the brilliant sustained twin cracks to single finger crack finish. The upper 35 feet protect well (as does the entire route) but the gear placements are pumpy to hang out and place. I really love this climb and to successfully lead it is incredible satisfying. It climbs much better than it looks and is better than Infrared.
It is named after my oldest daughter Violet

Indigo variation TR: Start Infrared and traverse across to Ultraviolet 12b/c

Protection

Gear to number 2 camalot. especially small to medium. Chain anchor.
Can only just TR with 60m rope. Can easily walk to top to set up
