Description 

A decent little linkup if you have climbed out this wall. Start same as Shame on a Chippa (about 5 feet right of Venus) and follow it up to the bulge. From here, launch into a pumpy traverse along so-so crimps just over the bulge and meet up with Mercury just after the Mercury crux. Follow Mercury to the anchors, and notice how what you thought was 5.11 terrain during your send go of Mercury has turned into 5.12ish climbing due just to pump. Fun climbing on cool crimps with pretty no rests as soon as you pull off the ground.

Location 

Starts just right of Venus on a Halfshell, traverses left into Mercury upon reaching the bulge.

Protection 

A few draws (not sure on the exact number, but a decent amount. If you do know, please comment below) and a stick clip. Decking might be a possibility mid-traverse if you don't stick clip the first few bolts...
