Description 

Amazing stone and movement. Flowing chill climbing leads up to a short but hard crux. Grab some small holds and smear on some poor feet until you reach the slot. Great shake at the big horizontal then make some long and exciting moves to the top.

Location 

Left of Thunderstruck 12b

Protection 

9 bolts, bolted anchor.

Hard to think of a more appealing face at Kaymoor, except perhaps with the exception of Slash and Burn. Just a brilliant path of white stone that kicks off with some good holds to a very intricate crux sequence. Bring your fingers for the business on this one!
