Joi de Vivre* HVS 5a

Rockfax Description
An eliminate but worthwhile pitch that shares some holds and gear with Box of Delights. Start as for Box of Delights.
Make the first few moves on Box of Delights and continue up the continuation crack to the overlap. Move left and make a difficult move through the overlap with little for the feet. Continue up the cracks above to the top. © ROCKFAX
