Follow the trail up and to right. This route is about 4-5 ft. left of Proteus. Start is same as Proteus (1st holds-do not use blocks for feet-use roof), then fire straight up blank face (3 ft. left of Proteus). Use very small crimps to a high rail. Clip first bolt or Proteus here, if you can. Follow very small crimps. From crimp go to bomber horizontal crack. Clip second bolt of Proteus or use a #1 DB Cam. Continue up slopers to next horizontal crack. Clip next bolt of Proteus or place another #1 BD Cam. Undercling knob and fire to shuts (2nd crux due to burn out).

5 out of 5 stars great route

great route, two fun cruxes. Easier if you are taller. Makes the rest of the climbs here look like ladders. It will definetely be easier the second time.
