Movie poster for "The Man Who Fell to Earth&q...

Description 

Follow discontinuous thin cracks (10d) onto the face above (11a). Kind of strange climbing that proves to be quite entertaining, with a little bit of run-out climbing. A high quality route on good rock.

Location 

Scramble up to the top of the ledges left of the start of Caliente (just right of B.C.'s Ouch Chimney).

Protection 

Bolts, thin gear, cams to 1.5". Maybe something around 2" for the belay.

Hidden Gem! Three bolts now for the initial 5.10d section, run out to bolt #4, distinct 5.11 crux at bolt#5. If you don't feel like 5.11 slab, traverse right at bolt #3 up a ramp to two bolts and then a bolted anchor in a left facing corner, finish on Caliente (10c 2nd pitch), bolts for rap to the right.
