Description

An interesting and decidedly left armed pumpy climb. Heads up the left arching layback via strenuous and fun climbing, with adequate but sometimes wish they were better feet. An interesting transition to the face leads to a short section of pocket pulling before the anchors.

Location

Located 15 yards or so right of Purple Galaxy, an obvious bolted left facing left arching bolted layback flake. Several bolted face lines are immediately right (12a,project?,12a).

Protection

7 bolts to anchor.

The upper flake may be seeping in the spring or after a heavy rain. Pumpy! May 15, 2017
