Finishing P1 from the right (5.7R).

Description 

Start with the first pitch of Xenomorph or the 5.5-7R face arcing out to the right. In either case, your destination is the top of the pillar.

Start by setting a nut high in the finger crack and proceed straight up. There are 6 good bolts on the pitch, with the crux coming at the 5th.

Location 

See Deville 3 approach. Very nice folks at the Cheley Camp office prefer you sign in.

Protection 

A single rack should be fine, as the first pitch is only about 100'.

This crag and its 2, 3-star routes are well worth it. It took me 15 years to get to this backyard crag, but I went back twice more just for the quiet setting. (took my dog, too). The folks at the Camp are extremely pleasant, and it's only about a 30-min. hike in.

Yes, Xenos' start is spicy, but you can shoot up and right for a #0.75 Camalot placement and add a double runner, then make the traverse to the bolt. I'm not too bold, but still think this deserve 2 stars.

As for Parallel Universe - it's probably 10+ overall, but is just a spectacular pump. Nicely bolted. (Is that an oxymoron?)
