24 Please Tow the Lettuce to the Pines

Really very good. This is the logical way to address the space 5m R of Cecilia and if it were done first would be obvious sister-routes to Cecilia and Blind Ambition. Because of history, it has ended up as a link up of Intransience, Blind Ambition and Girls on Bikes.

Three distinct sections: the first is Intransience 's initial steep moves to a rest. Then moving L approximately 1.5m (where Intransience goes R) via nice moves through the tricky grey section and back R again to another rest. Finally directly up through the blank black section over the last RB.

There is an alternative L finish from the last big horizontal up an obvious flake between the described finish and Cecilia, however despite the climbing being easier, gear is non-existent.

FA: Christian Seger & Adam Syriatowicz, 1997
