Description:

This climb is located at the far right end of the Balcony area. Begin on the left side of a roof. Move left to exit the roof, then right on a brilliantly exposed face. Very photo worthy, and very fun. A little trickier than most to clean.

3 out of 5 stars Okay route

Not sure why so many people like this route? The moves are pretty cool til you get to the Pale white Face. Then the "exciting crux" is literally a campus problem of five moves or very awkward and frustrating heel hook problem. It was fun I guess, but Alchemy is literally twice as fun with more consistency in fun.
