Body Drama.

Description 

Climbs the arete to the left of Mental As Anything. Harder version starts on the arete while the easier start uses a short ramp to access the large horizontal rail. Climb the arete using crimps, pockets, jugs, jams and kneebars. Don't be punter and cop a rest by rocking over to the slab to the right.

Location 

Left side of the arete to the left of Mental As Anything. The 5.12 start begins on the arete, while the 5.11 (and better) begins on the ramp to the left of the arete. Both starts converge at the large rail 12 feet up.

Protection 

Bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

Thought it was worth it to clip the first bolt on the 12 variation. Fingers ended up blowing off moving up through the small pockets and having the bolt clipped prevented me from landing on my back. Can definitely see skipping it on the 11 though, you're basically past its usefulness by the time youre at the end of the 'ramp'.
