Description  

This route starts right of yeti's Betty. Climb only the face avoiding yeti's Betty main crack. A thin balancey crux above the fourth bolt followed by continuous small edges leading to another tough section right before the anchors

I actually thought this route was harder than Goddess of Virtue. Two very tricky sequences to onsight.

I top-roped the route first, attempting to go right of the arrete, which made for a lot of guess-work on the holds.

Leading the route, I stayed left, which made the climbing much more apparent and enjoyable.
