This is the bolted climb on the backside of Fantasy Island, facing Freakshow. Start to the right of the black triangle recessed "Vortex". Climb up and left to a difficult move left and ends above the vortex at chain anchors.


Walk up to the plateau to the right of Freakshow, the Vortex is on the right.


5 bolts, chain anchor.

Deserves more traffic than it gets. Really fun line with a nice crux sequence in the middle.
