20m. Intense. Climb the easy flake and thin curving crack to where it withers then move left and climb the wall on tiny holds (each move is a touch harder then the last) to finish, grasping just a little, up the ramp of Secrets of Dance. E5 for gurus.

Each move is harder than the last, culminating in the crux move gaining the sloping ledge of secrets of dance. Super safe though! E5 7a more appropriate.

It is E5 7a more susstained than thing on a spring but way less scarier!
