Pitch 1-Use the same start as Primate Highway to a ledge at the top of a shallow corner, belay from this ledge. (5.9)

Pitch 2- Follow the ramp from the ledge to some bolts.


Bring your small stuff lots o' Aliens and small nuts.

This is an awesome route- the steep, bolted crux comes about half-way thru the 2nd pitch- a long throw off a sloper to a good pocket. A psychological crux comes at the top near the top of the cliff- a very thin corner that takes brass and maybe some off-set micro cams, then fun bolted face climbing to the top.
