Nice and steep. Pretty clean rock, with only a little loose stuff. Start of the third pitch is DFU hooks above a sharp flake/ledge. Use the Lovetron cheat stick on P4 twice - the first is intentional, the second to bypass a ripped flake which now needs a rivet. The Poison Pill is expando, and closes up on cams during the night. Goes mostly clean, with the occasional pin placement. Most heads are fixed. Hooks upon hooks upon hooks. Haul the first two pitches together with a 60m rope to a nice sidewalk-sized ledge. The final two hauls [on the Tangerine Trip finish] are bad, but all the rest are free hanging. You can bypass the Leavittator by staying on Aurora instead of going left to the crack. It is recommended you not drop your pig.

This was a pretty nice wall, with less loose rock than I expected. Quite a bit of expando, and lots of hook moves. A pig cratered from P6 with all my Valley Giants, so we had to skip the Leavittator and do an extra pitch on Aurora.
