Description

P1: Wide Country. Begin right of the Bastille Crack, at a shallow left-facing corner system. Climb this (5.9) with thin but adequate gear, being mindful of a large semi-detached block 50 feet up. Above this, at a bolt, climb up and left (crux, 5.11a if you have it wired), then back right to an obvious overlap (hand-sized cam) which you turn on the right, then up to the chain anchors at a nice stance (a 60m rope just makes it to the ground).

P2: XM to Outer Space. From the belay stance, head up and slightly left, past a couple of fixed pins, to a short, steep wall where the seam fades (small RP here). This is the traditional third pitch of XM. Pull this move (5.10b R), and head up forty feet into the Outer Space dihedral (5.10a) and the large ledge below the headwall, and belay.

P3: Outer Space. Now undercling up and left to the prominent crack system splitting the upper headwall (this is the last pitch of Outer Space). Follow the crack as it zig-zags up, finally reaching the top at some solution pockets.
