DescriptionThe obvious crack system on the right (west) side of the wall. I don't know the history behind this route and I'm not certain about the grade so if anyone knows more about it pass it on. The first pitch follows broken easy ground with climbing that gradually improves to a belay roughly halfway up. Some bushes/vegetation will be encountered down low. There are probably a few options for the belay but there was an old pin at the spot we chose (along with some good pro).
The 2nd pitch follows the nice 5.9 crack that splits the blank, lichen-covered face to the top right side of the wall, then traverses the crack heading out left below the big roof. Continue left on easy ground to reach the black chain achors at the top of Fantastic Voyage. I heard it is possible (and not as hard as it looks) to climb the crack that goes straight up through the far right side of the big roof at the end, but I haven't done it and know nothing more.
