Description [Suggest Change]
An absolute classic. Astro Pop is the first route of two you will see at the first wall. It is on the left. You start by walking up a ledge to the left of the first bolt. It is here that you should clip the bolt. Ease into the left hand and start up climbing technical ledges on good feet. After three bolts of the technical stuff, you reach a series of large ledges that are big enough to hang out on. Hike up to a chain link, which was graciously put there to help climbers avoid rope drag, so use it instead of the bolt. Then begin climbing up and over a roof and onto the face. The best pocket climbing one can do is located in this section. This will lead you to a crux up high where you just pinch/crimp a left hand hold and make a move to a large pocket. Top out standing on a big ledge where anchors are.
