Follow a trail for about 200 feet to the right and around the corner from Phantasia to an overhanging section of the cliff. Several feet right of a corner is this bolted route ascending the greenish face. Boulder the first few bolts then continue through sketchy blocks, moss, and damp holds to the chains. Say goodbye to this section of the cliff because you'll probably never be back.

this thing is pretty great but a few of the bolts could use replacing. it requires a good head though, a little run out especially on the traverse.

Real fun route, moves down low are stellar! 4 stars if it cleaned up and got rebolted.

Surprisingly great route! Seems like a majority of the bolts have been replaced. My chossdar is pretty sensitive and I enjoyed it a lot; not too dirty. Awesome movement throughout.
