Description 

Named after an old Martian movie, a pretty nice route. Slabby, well protected crux down low into a nice, though somwhat, flaring crack. When the crack gets funky, run it out to the prominent horizontal for some gear, then wander to the top on dishes. Fun long pitch...a little spicy.


Location 

Backside of window rock...50 feet left of good times/pure pleasure...look for the lone bolt, connecting overlaps to the obvious crack.


Protection 

Bolt and gear down low when the climbing is harder, runout easy terrain up top. 70M rope will let you climb all the way to the tip top of Window rock.Scramble down to north end raps.

flared crack does not take good gear. first good piece was 25 feet off deck. must be solid for the grade.
