Fun route to do if in the area. Will clean up over time and could even get a bonus .25 star once it does! Crystal powers throughout! Flake at the very start is a little suspect but is easy to avoid to the left.

Edit: Sorted out better beta that included not climbing with a drill and putting on climbing shoes with socks. Maybe more challenging for our short comrades.

Getting over the starting roof is the fun crux of this climb. After that, it eases up to some laid back climbing to the anchors.

Very chill, the beginning is certainly the crux. Get up past that for some very easy stuff. HOWEVER THE TRUE CRUX IS THE CACTUS!!!
