This section of the Sun Wall is quite intimidating. Aerospace Cadet is one of the easier routes up through the bulges.

Weird climbing on the second pitch. Big bulgy slopers moves and mantles. Good pro when you need it.


Starts about 50 left of Out to Lunch, right side of an apron.


Typical Glass Rack

Awesome route. Some of the best 5.10 hand jamming on the LG!

Definitely not my style. Felt sandbagged and very dirty, but the gear was great. I think the taller you are, the easier it is to do the crux bulge moves. Some heady moves with some bad fall potential at the start of P2. The rest was very well protected. Felt like trying to wrestle a hippo.
