Description 

Space Invaders is a huge, north facing, overhanging boulder. The climbing is in the 5.11 to 5.12 range. The routes can be led or easily top-roped.

There are two micro domes (the "Space Domes") across the gully to the northwest that offer short, challenging routes. Use this approach, but head up and left to the domes.

Getting There 

About two miles from the junction of Sawmill Rd. and Hwy 50. Take the first right, onto Twin Peaks. Park at a dead end just beyond Mountain Canary. Do not disturb the residents. Hike up a gully and the cliff is on the right.
