Description

It climbs beautifully on bomber small edges, side pulls and thumberclings, as one might expect from a cryptic Donner summit granite face/slab climb. It's a shorter but much stouter sibling to the neighboring "Welcome to My Nightmare," "Nice Dreams," and "Death Tongue;" the name carries the theme forth. It reminded me of "Aromatic" at Pine Creek and "Holy Wars" at the ORG, only harder and thinner. The movement is ace; quality of rock is second to none! I left the proposed grade a bit vague and open-ended but I would welcome your opinions! 

All hardware are stainless steel petzl wedge bolts and hangers! Go get on it! 

(For toproping, a directional can be set higher than the last bolt by placing a cam in the crack features on the back of the ledge and a long sling.)

Location

Between Brain Child and Left Dropout. It tops out to the same anchor as Left Dropout.
