Description:

A near-vertical face climb, this one is about balance. The crux is the start.

Variation (easier) : Use start of Crystal, traverse right to first bolt, continue on-route to top. Less of a deviation is to start about 4 feet left of first bolt, instead of directly underneath it (which is the real start).

2 out of 5 stars somewhat disappointing but check out the bitchin' TR

Too one-move-wonderish. But put it up, then get your lesser climbers on the 5.8/5.9 TR that starts Crysal New Persuasion (risking a swing fall into the ground), traverses the early ledge to CP's bolt #1, then up CP.

3 out of 5 stars Wow

technical. Saw this route and figured "10a, i'll warm up on it". Foot slipped in the very beginning and blew the onsight. Not used to technical cruxes on 10's for sure. Decent route though.
