This sequential crimp line is located on the slabby wall right of Praying Mantis and just left of Happy Feet. Crimpy and sequency face climbing leads to a slab with a jug rest. Clip a bolt, gaze into the eerie evil eye hold as you float out to the brick shaped knob. Make a long scary move, clip another bolt, and breathe a sigh of relief as you soak up a squat rest. Finish on tiny crimps to the chains.
Moves: Crimps
Descent: Chains
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry

Moss/lichen has taken over the top half. Dirt has made the bottom half difficult. No stars in its current state. Kind of a shame because the movement is quite good.
