Description 

Just right of Heaven and left of Mushroom Planet is a quartzy crack/feature that marks the start of a hard (V9/10) boulder problem. This leads to a roof and arete (kneebar useful) and the finish.

I belayed Ward on this way back. An amazing looking climb--power, continuity, and a good line.

Location 

left of the obvious overhanging crack, Journey to a Mushroom Planet

Protection 

5 bolts
