Description 

Start up Midnight Visitor for the first 3 bolts, then do a delicate traverse right, passing one bolt and then joining up with the top of Junkie Cosmonaut. When you get to the anchors at the top of Junkie Cosmonaut, keep climbing onto the next pitch, which is called Shades of Grey.

Overall this felt less sustained than the neighboring Midnight Visitor/After Midnight linkup, but it has a couple steep tricky cruxes that take some figuring out and demand strong toes.

Location 

Starts at the same place as Midnight Visitor, right next a pine tree at the base of the wall.

Protection 

15 bolts plus a three bolt anchor
