Climb dead vertical to overhung face below cosmic trauma..The route ends at a chossy break just below the summit.
P1 60ft 5.11c..Step off the pillar and climb big sidepulls and sharp edges to the first crux at the 4th-5th bolt. Trend left to a two bolt anchor at the left.
P2 90ft 5.11c..Step left off the belay to good stance and climb overhanging crimps just right of the flake system, when possible reach out and climb the flake to a 2 foot roof. Clip the fixed draw and climb the 2nd crux on a hard sequence of decent holds. (while at the fixed draw look right and ponder another sequence through the blankness) after the roof work back toward the center of the wall.
P3 5.11- 90ft.. The money pitch. Head straight up the wall following good holds, and long reaches to an good stance below a 3 foot roof. Make your way through the roof on huge hidden holds and a handjam or two finish right at the anchor.
Climb/scramble/solo the first pitch of Spacshot and begin on the pillar to the left of the start for the 2nd pitch.
12ish draws and slings.. Single 60m rope
