Description 

This extension, despite only one star in the guide, is pretty fun and well worth doing. It would probably get three stars if the anchors were a little lower and you didn't have to climp the incredibly polished and sandbagged first half.

From the anchors of Purple and Green, tech your way up continuously thin climbing on sidepulls and a few bad feet. The line wanders a bit to take advantage of the better holds on the wall. After getting through the crux, climb another 15 feet of 5.10 low angle lichen climbing.

This climb reminded me a lot of Ten Sleep. So if you like this style, then this is worth checking out.

Location 

This is an extension of Purple & Green.

Protection 

10? bolts to fixed anchors. The anchors twist your rope if you clip both of them, so maybe bring an extra quicklink to extend the left one.
