In the crux(es).
Start in the same place as for Groovy. After 15' bust around the corner and angle up right to a good horizontal. Move up through the obvious crimper section and into the crack. Pull the crux moves ... I say plural because the crux section is more than one move; it's a couple of hard moves linked together. Once you pull up over the bulge, place a critical #1 Camalot; there's no gear after this and you still have some 5.8 climbing that's not all that obvious, up and left to the shared anchor.
40' right of Bonnie's Roof at a left-facing corner capped by a roof (Groovy).
Small wires and a single set of cams up to a #2 Camalot.

After I climbed this and read the William's description, I couldn't stop saying "exquisite." That is the adjective he chose to describe the climbing on this one... I offer an adjective... forgettable.

what is the face to the left of this? anybody know? you do the crimper section on space invaders, then instead of moving right to where the climber in the picture is, you go strait up on more small holds. gear wasn't too good...

Some nice movement, committing moves above gear but the crux protects. Cool moves at the start too.

Akline, none of my guidebooks give a name to that set of moves.

i checked with a very prominent local who told me that someone had top-roped it before as "space invaders direct"

I top roped the "direct" version today. Pumpy crux for a few moves with one good rest in the middle. Gear possible in crux, but I'd say it goes at 5.10ish PG.
