Did you come to Illusions hoping to send, only to find the top to be a mirage? Does crack climbing appeal to you but a V8 roof crack is a little much? 

Start far back in the "Two Tickets" crack, left hand on a crimp edge and right hand palming against the crack. Feet follow the low rail of rock which run from the back of the cave to the front. Bump, Jam or shuffle hands along the crack until you can get a good right hand crimp toward the lip of the cave, and set a bomber fist jam. Break out to a small jug on the face and finish on the final moves of Illusion and Two Tickets. 

Despite a less than aesthetic foot rail and the appearance that you're just standing on the ground (you're not, feet are just low), the movement on this boulder is quite enjoyable, muscular and rewarding. This is a great warm up for Illusions or Two Ticket and an even better consolation prize if both of those lines are eluding you!


On the Illusions boulder, hands follow the Two Tickets crack and feet walk the ledges on the right of the cave.
