Pastel

Description 

Short power problem on great rock. Start left of The Crimp Line with a decent right handed sidepull and a shallow, marginal left handed crimp. Pull on with difficulty, make a tough stab with the left hand to a bad crimp, then jump to a good edge for the right hand and top out.

I called this line "Pastel" and the lines to its right are: Acrylic, Oil, PNM, Mix, MFA, TFA
I thought Oil was the harder. I sat the far right of the seam and went up from there.

Thanks for the correction! I saw another boulder further up that had remnants of chalk on it; short and round and pretty polished that looked really good, but I didn't have a chance to try it. Had you done this also?

I assume you mean the little egg boulder up in the wash. Chris and I cleaned it and came close but never made it back. Short but super fun.
