From the left side of an alcove, climb a hand crack (5.9) to where Rock Lobster comes in from the left. Undercling a flake right, then diagonally right. Then go straight up to an overhang just below the top. A blue Alien can be placed high in the right side of the bulge. Grab a good hold on the lip, crank up, and confront a smooth, heavily lichened section that needs a bolt, just beneath the bolted anchors. I backed off without manteling up the last few holdless, heavily lichened feet (5.10 to this point), because I was afraid to wing off and smash into who-knows-what below the overhang — and that's if the Alien were to hold. Take doubles of one to four inches, plus a few Aliens.
It is in alcove near the center of the rock.
