Description 

From the south entrance, hike up past the The Mod Pod (Phallic Boulder) until you're almost to a huge, upright dead tree. Turn right, and hike up a hundred feet (past some rad problems) to the boulders (Turd Balls). Unless you're blind, you will immediately notice the beautiful, horrifying, wonderful spaceship formation in the middle of the area.

Spaceman Spiff comes in from the left arete of the prow (not using the lower block for feet, but it'd still be good otherwise), then it busts into one of the raddest bearhug maneuvers ever. On the (?) FA, we used a TR, and the landing at the start would at least break half yer bones.

Protection 

Bring a sling.

What does medium mean here?

I just meant that it's not ridiculously hard but definitely not easy either. Probably somewhere in the B1/B1+ range, but I'm not really sure.

Than and Ryan,

Hats off to you guys. Weren't you nervous about the whole "spaceship" coming down on top of you?
What a rad and funny problem.

Ryan Sayers died a couple of years ago of a lightning strike while climbing Steeple Peak in the Wind River Range. He was 20 years old. Really sad.

Hi Mike,

This is very sad news. I suggest naming something in the vicinity of Spaceman Spiff after Ryan.
