Description 

The natural sit start of "Randy Moss" which makes avoiding the crimpy start holds of the mentioned climb possible.. Start on the giant sloper crystal ball down and left of the overhang. Make a hard move up use a left heel hook. From here make a move up to a crimp or do a big slap and move rightward on slopers. Keep traversing on slopers and edges. Hit a big sloper and chalk up for the crux finishing maneuver at the corner. It is far and feels like you won't be able to hold it. Once you commit to the big move you realize the hold is incredibly positive. Stick it and pull off a rad mantel!

Location 

This line is the arete to the right of "Pine Tree Crack".

Protection 

Four pads and a spotter.

Is this just a low start into Randy Moss?

Yeah, it adds a couple hard but good moves into the start of Randy Moss. It's a pretty obvious extension starting on the crystal bulge out left. I wouldn't be too surprised if its been done before. We got it on camera, I'll post the video here when I finish it.

I was working Randy Moss and then Brad said "Oh shi- Jake do it from the lower start! Minty Floss!!" which got me super psyched so I sent haha

I thought that this was the natural start of the line. Especially with the awesome crystal blob feature. The name Minty Floss came from the mint colored moss and lichen right next to the start hold.
