Description

Astro Lad is the proud thin crack a few routes to the right of Bad Moki Roof. It is obvious when you see 2 bolts halfway up and a bunch of chalk on the other side of the right facing dihedral. Start with finger locks and liebacking to a good rest and clip 2 bolts to the jamming crux. Sustanined climbing makes this one a battle to the end.

Protection

Cams from greem alien to yellow camalot(2). Medium stoppers help as well with the finger locks.

really good- crux is low, but the climbing is tricky up higher... Apr 19, 2008

Staying in the corner is supposedly harder (11+) but I think it's less intimidating than breaking out left. Both variations are fun in their own way. Nov 5, 2008

If you want to up the ante a bit lead Astro-Dad (staying in the corner) on gear. Some micro-cams and an attentive belayer will help the head during the stem moves until you can rejoin the crack with a good .4 or .5 placement. I'd say Astro-Dad clocks in at solid 11. Sep 26, 2013

Great route! If you stay in the corner you can find great feet out right. Dec 22, 2015
