Climb consistent and powerful pockets through the bottom three bolts to reach the crux: a bad, heart shaped undercling leading into a finicky clip. From here the route is eases slightly; moving through amazing sequency pockets and edges. A rest near the top prefaces the redpoint crux between the last bolt and the anchors. Hang on for the anchor clip. Amazing route and difficult at the consensus 13b grade.


First route to the right of the intimidating vader project.
