If I'm not mistaken, the lowest newly-reinforced belay platform lines up with Alpha Centauri. The belay platform for Straw Man would be the next one up the hill.

Yes, Alpha Centauri is on the lowest belay platform and Straw Man is the next one up.

I think this goes at 5.7 in the guidebook but 5.8 could be a better rating. Really fun, sustained climbing for the grade.
