Overhung start at left end, up sharp rock to ledge/cave. P2 up and right, avoid going straight right, abandoned project. P3 is the beauty, go up on great rock to anchor at base of stalactites. Can head left thru "needle" to join Big Wave for two more pitches.

I led all three pitches on-sight, after climbing Humanality in the morning, and before crossing over to the last 2 and a half pitches of The Wave. What a day! This 5 and a half pitch combo was definitely my favorite at Tonsai. Breathtaking! Looking at the wall as a whole from the ground, it strikes me as such an amazing climb - and that it is! The third pitch has two cruxes - one right at the start and one near the top, breaking out of the groove.
