Marks the left side of the bulge and ends on a ramp like feature. Start on the same landing used for "Gemini" and "C.E." but head left past some looser rock. The rock clean up pretty quick though. But the climbing is only so-so. After clipping the second bolt look for some holds on the left side to get you past a steep section (very inobvious) and then follow the ramp to the top. Still a little bit dirty in the middle section.
5 bolts and chains

I hate this route. Easily the worst route in the area. One really hard move. It's ridiculously hard for 5.9, but Christian says it's 5.9. Whatever. Weird, not enjoyable climbing.
We named it this because Christian had to knock of a ginormous, person-sized flake. It hit the ground with a pretty big thud...

Yeah, not a fan. I led the other three routes that share the same chains with no problem, but I could not get to the third bolt at all on this one. Way harder than 5.9, unless I'm just missing something here.

I think the key 5.9 hold (between bolt 2&3) must've broke off this one. There's still some crumbly rock on this route, be careful.
