Description

This route would feel harder if not for the napping ledge in the middle. Excellent crux above the ledge, followed by some long juggy pulls.

Location

Lunar Lander is left of Mission to Mars, and uses a fixed line to yard past the initial chossy slab. A new line - Gravitational Pull 12d - veers right after the 6th bolt and crux of Lunar Lander, and finishes at the Mission to Mars anchor.

Protection

Bolts to chains.

Climbed this today and found the fourth bolt (i think) had been pulled... bolt and hanger sitting on ledge at base of route. Moves through this section aren't too bad... but it would be a hell of a fall if you blew it. Not sure if direction of rope pull was cause but if anyone knows why it was pulled it would be nice to know before putting a new bolt in. Also fixed line is not really necessary and more of an eyesore than an aid. Feb 1, 2010

Fixed line is gone and not needed. Would be nice to have that fourth bolt replaced, even though it's not real hard there. Would love to see the crux bolts moved to the left for both a cleaner fall and that's where the climbing goes anyway. Not sure how you would do this route if you were short. Nov 7, 2010

Someone replaced that missing bolt. Old one must have loosened, and someone pulled it out instead of tightening it down. Didn't realize that fixed line was so hard on the eyes. Mine were unaffected. Must be a matter of perspective. Enjoy the 20 feet of slabby choss. And Jason....I try, but I just can't please everyone. May 9, 2013

Looks like folks bail out to the left at the crux which could make for a bad swinging fall into the ledge. I found the moves going directly through the bolt line to be excellent and precise and merit the 12b grade. Feb 8, 2016
