Space Junk!

Description 

Begin the same as you would for Superfly, clipping two bolts to your right before entering the restful 'mouth' shared by both routes. From here fire straight up a series of edges and pockets, negotiating a cruxy 4th bolt followed by some steep and interesting climbing to another crux at the 6th both. Finish at the anchor just below the top of the cliff. Great climbing on interesting holds-- distinct from any of the other Solar routes.

Location 

Right of 'Superfly' left of the dihedral crack climb 'Yakuza'

Protection 

7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor
