Mind Meld is the aesthetic SE arete of the Dilitium Crystal. The first 25' are quite bouldery and have difficult clips, but the climbing remains sustained beyond this as it ascends the arete via a series of one and two finger pockets. Eventully the climb veers left to join... the classic 5.11a whose name escapes me at the moment. A fun route with really interesting, powerful movement. Easily toproped from... nope, still can't remember it.

Photon Torpedo is the excellent, slightly polished, face climb to the left of Mind Meld. It was originally rated 5.10, but has been upgraded in each subsequent guide and is now 5.11b. Thanks to Chris Miller for jogging my memory!

As noted, a cruxy start to sustained climbing above which if pumped can feel desperate. Overall a very good climb, but just one of the many great routes on this superb crag.

Cool Tony Puppo route! My first .12b and second 5.12 ever! Fun, and my style (crux down low before I'm pumped, and techy stuff up higher...)

Hard boulder problem off the ground followed by some monos. Good thing I'm a Ninja. I saw some locals lapping out on the crystal, doing the start of this route and then finishing on lientenant uhuru, traversing above the 2nd crux on Mind Meld. They were REAL Ninjas.

A fun route that suits the boulderers, although there is a move up high with a pocket that might get you.
