This picture is not the greatest, but the start of...
This route is left of the large fallen pillar. The route follows a left leaning crack system. The crack begins small and gets bigger as you climb higher. Because the route leans, you need a 60-meter rope to get to the ground. A worth while route. There is a two-bolt anchor with some webbing.
variety of cams (camalots .3 - # 3)

Interesting route. Seemed soft for the grade (at least by IC standards). Red and yellow aliens for the start (probably the technical crux), #0.75 Camalot, #1 Camalot, 2x#2 Camalots, 2x3 Camalots, and one #3.5 Camalot (not really neccessary) right before the chains. The top crack had lots of feet and rests.

Rad climb!! If you're looking to push your lead climbing limit, this one's a good candidate for you. It's not sustained and the gear is good and plentiful.

The lady pillar was a great warm up route for this area, I origionally climbed this route with sibylle hechtel, we were doing a first ascent, perhaps 5.9, a beautiful lady deserves a beautiful climb. I'm sure we were the first ones to put in the anchors. I don't remember seeing Josh that day. Keith Reynolds

Fun route and great, easy warm-up. Crux is the twin yellow alien cracks to get started then it's super cruiser after that. #2s with plenty of rest feet all the way up.
