Description 

Start in a right-facing corner with a small pillar at the bottom. Climb the pillar and corner until the angle backs off and it is possible to traverse left in a hand-size crack around a small cave feature. Proceed up a wider crack in a left-facing corner until a good ledge is reached.

Now the fun begins. Squirm into the squeeze chimney and wriggle your way up past two bolts until the chimney pinches down and you are forced to exit. Climb a final hand crack in the upper left facing corner to reach the anchor ledge.

Location 

Approach as for Cyanosis, this route is on the buttress across the gully on the right. Rap or lower off.

Protection 

2 Bolts, Gear to 4". Mussy hook anchor.
