BETA PHOTO: Pale Blue Eyes (5.10-) starts at the crescent flak...


This is a fun, pure friction climb at a moderate grade.

It starts just right of the crescent-shaped flake. Smear upwards toward the belay tree. Trending left into Turkish Delight will make it easier, and trending left into Grinch Breath will make it harder (so try to stay in the middle!). The first half is the crux, after that the angle eases off.


Right of center there is an obvious, crescent-shaped flake above the horizontal. Start just right of the flake (use it if you must). Walk of left or right.


No pro. TR off small tree at the top.
