Senior Citizens in Space
|2,233 page views|
Senior Citizens in Space is the obvious right facing corner. The climbing is consistent with no obvious crux move. Layback up the corner split by a couple of cracks on the left side. The angle lessens as you get higher. One of the best moderates at Index.
Belay at the 2 bolt anchor at top.
Start 20' to the right of Battered Sandwich.
Rappel from the 2 bolt anchor.
Heavy on finger sized cams. Gear to 2". Save a few small pieces for the top.

This is a really good route! It's the best 5.8 I've climbed and the best 5.8 at Index. For me the crux was where it steepens near the top, because there was a lot of debris in the crack and that made it a little hard to get jams.

the crux for me was definitely getting into the corner system. after that the climb is a cruise. one of the best leads i've done anywhere!

Nice route. Could be a 5.8 move getting onto it but from there it's pretty easy. Upper section is quality but not harder than 5.6.
