Spring Surprise HVS 5b
[Sorting out bomber Hex pro before stepping up for the foot traverse., 2 kb]16m. Past the huge red rock scar that was 'Earth Rim Roamer' is a shorter slab.
This climb takes the rising crackline above the obvious diagonal crack of "Crab Slab". Gain the large pocket then make some difficult moves to gain the smaller pocket. Follow the crack leftwards until possible to climb to the top.

Nice challenging bit to get from one pocket to the next, but other than that the climbing is straightforward.
