I would suggest taking one or two green aliens for the first couple of moves in the second corner. This route is amazing...FA Steve Petro?

F.A. by the late Jose Pereyra. He also has an unrepeated route north of Lake Powell, "No Way Jose."

The new guide says this is 130 feet, has anyone lowered off this with a 70m?
