Ladd on the start of Vaseline Vision.

Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start on the large right facing dihedral, make the same starting moves as Delayed Stress Syndrome, clip the 2nd and 3rd blts off the jug then rest. Out of the rest grab the horn, cross to an undercling, go big up to the mini-heuco, match, throw up and right and keep the pump at bay to clip the anchors way above your 3rd bolt.

Location 

This is the route immediately left of Delayed Stress Syndrome, and right of Pro-Vision.

Protection 

3 bolts to anchors. Don't botch the anchor clip, it is a grounder.

I fell off of the very last move of this route on an onsight attempt and remember that fall vividly.
