So, C + S, it sounds like there is still stuff at and around the tunnel egress, and more so at and near the base of the route, that could be cleaned up? Boy, that would be a score, picking up tourist and industrial garbage that's actually on a climb.

the crux sequence is a bit tricky

Linda Jarit leads the 5.8 crux of Edge of Absurdity, frames 9 and 10

Very nice. A good one that I'm going to keep in the pocket for a sunny winter day.

After memorizing Ed's photos, I still took three leader falls on this move. Clint backed off it. Approach at your own risk.

I backed off that move, but the beta uses the outside left foot, and my left foot doesn't work very well.
So I went "around" the crux by going 60' straight up with minimal pro, then traversed right at that higher level.
