Description 

You can Scramble up and setup TR or climb up Trad. Goes a lot easier to the left if you go into the OW looking crack and just stem up.

The crux of this of this climb is the start, transitioning from layback to face. You may want to place a pro high as you can in the layback section before leaving the ground.

There is a Tricam stuck in the layback for semi-perma-pro.

You can also use this to setup TR for both Mystic Knight and divine wind.

Location 

Left of Divine Wind. Look behind the bush to a the big layback start.

Protection 

Typical Rack to Thin, might want a big #5 (C4) if you want to use the big giant Off-Widthy Crack on Left. Gets THIN at top.

felt about 10b if using only the upper left thin crack, and likewise if using only the right thin crack
