Description

Scramble up a chimney on the NE corner of the rock and belay (1-2") in an alcove just above the Space Station. Make an exposed reach into a clean crack. Jam and layback this, and finish in an easy slot. Rap bolts on top.

Doing it in the middle of the night adds some air to the route. Go time begins immediately after pulling out of the alcove above the Space Station. Stellar, stellar route, and you feel like a rock star. Apr 4, 2016

I couldn't recommend this pitch enough.

Pretty minimal on the kitty litter, though there is some. This thing looks from the ground to be a gnarly finger crack, but it climbs as a very fun layback for almost the whole route. There is a short relatively easy offwidth section up top, if you're not confident in those skills I'd recommend bringing a #5 or #6. otherwise just take a single rack from .3-#3, maybe double up on .4 sized cams.
