BETA PHOTO: Chocolate Couture problem on the Veiled Citizen Bo...

Description 

Chocolate Couture is a straightforward crimp test. Stand start by reaching a right hand, incut sidepull and a left hand on an oblique crimp. From there, move straight up the slightly overhung face using a bulbous knob and crimp rail. The topout is solid and juggy. Downclimb the opposite face.

Shorter folks may need to stack a few pads to reach the start holds.

Location 

This is on the West-face of the Veiled Citizen Boulder.

Protection 

A few pads and a spotter, landing is great though.

Good problem! It starts high and really delicate and finishes up on positive holds. Good vision, Nick!
