Skinny Puppy, pitch two, Jason Keith leading up to...
This route is slighly overhanging with a complete variety pack of climbing along its 180'.
A short approach pitch (5.7)leads to a ledge with a bolted station.
Pitch 2 starts off with thin face climbing(11-) to a crack that goes from fingers to fists to hands, then switches crack systems where it gets wider(up to #4BD), a bolt is passed before entering the bombay slot and an awkward belay stance at the base of the Maw.(5.11)
Pitch 3 goes up the chimney/slot with fingers/face moves past a bolt. Above the crack widens enough to take a 4.5/5 camalot near the exit. Continue up the corner to rappel anchors in a nice overhanging alcove below the top of the block 165'rappel to ground
This route is NOT on Space tower but is around the corner to the left. This overhanging block with a gash(the Maw) is visible from the cattleguard/fenceline just past the ice cream parlor. Anchors are visible.
good sized desert rack from 0.4- #5 camalots
triples in #1-#3.5 (plus a #4.5 and #5 for courage)
