Looking up from the start of the route.


The crux for me was near the start, getting up above the gap and into the crack.


At the right end of the roof, there is a gap with a vertical crack above it. This is in between Bolt Line and the large block under Ariel's Brassiere.

The crux is definitely that start. Folks' opinions of this route's difficulty covered a greater range than just about any other PK route as I was gathering info for the guidebook. Everything from 5.6 from the folks who cruised the start to 8+ from folks who got shut down.
