Description 

There are two starts for this route, and both start with a single bolt. The left start is 10a. The right start up black blobs is 5.9.

Climb one of two starts that leads to a continuous finger crack that finishes in a right facing corner. Excellent! 35m. This is a long lower off! Pay attention to the rope end when lowering!

Location 

Elixir Wall Right.

Protection 

3 bolts. Gear doubles to .75 Camalot. Pro is tricky at times.

Fun route! Thanks for putting it up! The nature of this route made me want to sew it up, and I did. That being said, I carried way too much tiny gear. The smallest cam I placed was a .3 BD and the smallest stopper was a BD 7. I don't consider those tiny. Doubles of .3 up to .5 and a set of stoppers with extra med size is about what I used. I also placed a pink and red Tricam and would have placed a brown Tricam and one hand size piece had I carried them.
