Description 

Start out by climbing a short pillar near the wall, then stem out and get on the route. It follows nice orange patina to a groove, then enters a shallow right facing corner to the top.

This was still a bit grainy, but will clean up nicely with a few more ascents. The name is in reference to flowers which turn and grow into the light. A fitting name, since this climb gets a relatively high amount of sun compared to the rest of the crag. A good route to climb when it gets cold.

Location 

Farthest left route on the wall. Starts from a ledge running along the base.

Protection 

10 bolts to Mussy Hook anchor.
