Description 

This climb is very good! The first part is 11d, the second part adds a difficult crux and is quite sustained, at 12d.
The crux is particularly hard to onsight as you can't see where to go!;) Look around yourself well , and you should be fine.


Location 

It's on the extreme left of Planetarium Wall.

Protection 

Bolts, anchor at the top.

The first part (11d/12a) is worth doing alone, but the extension makes it a mega classic. The last slap to the top side pull makes for a dramatic red-point crux. Great in the summer shade because it starts right at the water and the wind keeps the holds crisp.
