[High on Incursion, 1 kb]14m. Climb The Green Streak until a delicate traverse out right gains the hanging slab. The next couple of moves are the crux and a low Friend in a pocket just about protects the start of the difficulties. When worried on the crux, remember the route has been done one-legged and with no hands! © ROCKFAX
