Begin as for Sofa Kingdom and find the first bolt near the pine tree on the left. After the 2nd bolt, place the red+green Aliens to protect a hard move past the flake. A #1 Camalot and easy climbing leads to two more bolts on the arete. There is a hard move at the 2nd bolt, then you can place a yellow Alien-size in a horizontal crack. After one more move (place a #2 Camalot to protect any followers), easy climbing leads right to the Sofa Kingdom anchors.

This is probably harder than Sofa Kingdom.


Begin just left of Sofa Kingdom.


Red+yellow+green Aliens, #1+#2 Camalot, [5] bolts.

Is this the route with the tan-colored bolts to the left of Sofa Kingdom? Not bad, but I thought I remembered more than 4 bolts? Did you add a few up top?

Should only be 4 bolts. I thought about a separate anchor from Sofa Kingdom but have not done so.

When I climbed this route today, there were five bolts. From the second bolt on Sofa Kingdom, move up and left, past a third bolt, to the base of the flake. Above the flake, there were two more bolts on the arete.
