This route is essentially 5.9 A0 or .11+/12-. If you clip the first bolt and french-free through the starting bulge, you'll be rewarded with a nice, moderate slab. Or try to climb through the awkward and fairly difficult start, and probably be disappointed by how easy the rest of the route is. Your choice.


4-5 bolts and a green alien/blue TCU/.3 Camalot to anchors. Bolts are new as of 2009.


Farthest right route at Space Wall, on the slab.

Just yard through the first bolt, otherwise makes for a mellow warm-up. Blue TCU works well for the horizontal. Mar 13, 2012
This climb now has 3/8" bolts (bring a green alien or equivalent for horizontal crack between 2nd and 3rd bolts) and a proper bolted anchor, the start however is still heinous Sep 10, 2009
JMO---This route seemed pretty lame to me...not much opportunity for pro, either. Like Paul sez, the B1 start is ugg.

Barely even a candidate for 1/1 replacement. Do yourself a favor and do "Moonshadow" or any other route nearby. Mar 6, 2007

The 1/4 bolts are still there, and after soloing The Black Hole, I went up for a look see for anchors. I didn't see any. I did see some old webbing hanging around a large mazanita bush up top and a LONG way from the final bolt, though the top didn't look very difficult. So - if you want to set up a top rope, bring some sacrifical webbing and a 20'+ sling and climb the chimney to the left. Jun 5, 2006
