Crux of Knapping with the Alien
Fun crimps and mantles up an ever-so-slightly under vertical wall. Hard for short people. All the hard moves are at bolts, and/or from large ledges that you can safely land on if you miss. Good holds all the way.
OBVIOUS sport route on edges, about 50 yards right of Bad Moki Roof.
5 drilled pins and chains

Any word on how that last pin before the anchors is fairing? Spring '07 it was getting a little wobbly.

Great bolts spaced super close together when I climbed this yesterday...the crux was a little perplexing with so many different holds to choose from that were all pretty bad

All bolts were in fine condition as of fall 08.

All the bolts on this are fine as of march 2010. What a sweet little route! Good technical face climbing with some good rests to size up the crux moves before you go for it.

Ok climb but watch the ledges around bolt 4, they can be in the path of a fall at the upper crux. Would be great but the feet are WAY too sandy to be doing technically demanding moves on.

Not sure if I would call this thing 12a. It's Maybe 5.10 climbing to a v4-boulder problem. Closer to 11c.

Excellent route. I would definently recommend this one. I think this is probably 5.11d.
