A mid-route variation to Crown Of Thorns that will keep your attention. Harder if you are taller (one of those few times when it's better to be shorter in climbing ;-) ). Climb Crown Of Thorns, but instead of heading up inside the chimney formed by the detached block, climb up the left-facing corner outside that same detached block to a roof, and traverse left to gain the top of the block. Finish on the steep, outrageous-looking wall to a spacious ledge. Try not using the blocks behind you to the right when working the steep wall; all the holds are there. Fun.
