Poison Hemlock (Also called the Blood of Socrates) is the plant that was used to poison and kill Socrates.

Pretty sketchy but very enticing. When at the moonlight area, find the very obvious Land Shark Arete, To the left of this is a slabby wall. Look for the ferns growing on the wall at about 10ft up. The slab line starts with some easy balance step-ups through easy terrain. Once you get up off of the deck and with hands in the obvious big crack jugs, the features become very thin.

Step up onto tricky feet with hands still in the deep horizontal crack features (you’ll be very close and to the right of the ferns) and situate your hands on thin, small bumps and ripples. Stand up for the crux move of the line which is grabbing the bigger knobs up higher.

Once you get past the crux, don’t climb any higher (death if you fall) but squirrel your way under the long roof across the upper deck. Climb over to the top of Landshark and walk off.
