Description 

Astro Lad is the proud thin crack a few routes to the right of Bad Moki Roof. It is obvious when you see 2 bolts halfway up and a bunch of chalk on the other side of the right facing dihedral. Start with finger locks and liebacking to a good rest and clip 2 bolts to the jamming crux. Sustanined climbing makes this one a battle to the end.


Protection 

Cams from greem alien to yellow camalot(2). Medium stoppers help as well with the finger locks.

really good- crux is low, but the climbing is tricky up higher...

Staying in the corner is supposedly harder (11+) but I think it's less intimidating than breaking out left. Both variations are fun in their own way.

No doubt, one of the better routes of Wall Street

Not to be missed!

If you want to up the ante a bit lead Astro-Dad (staying in the corner) on gear. Some micro-cams and an attentive belayer will help the head during the stem moves until you can rejoin the crack with a good .4 or .5 placement. I'd say Astro-Dad clocks in at solid 11.
