Description 

Start below a large pod and wander up and right past a few bolts to the arete. Climb up the arete and out a short roof to a fun but sometimes reachy jug haul finish.

Location 

Crystal Gazer starts at the left anchor of the first rope traverse on Finland Terrace. The route climbs the prominent arete to left of the roof and stem box of Radical Self Expression

Protection 

10 Bolts to hooks. The anchor bolt on the rope traverse makes for a nice belay.

Look for the obvious headwall with a bolted arete moving up through a roof section at about 60 feet. Easy 5.11 climbing leads into ample rest opportunity on big holds prior to a crux section at the roof. Move past the roof into 5.10 climbing on big holds for the rest of the climb. Definitely worth it to hop on, though it earns the grade from only a few moves.
