Somewhat squeezed between Isogram and Alien and a number of other R/X(?) routes, this follows really good and fun jugs and horizontals up the face. Should become popular.

Pitch #1: Left of the arete, climb past 5 bolts to the bolted belay of Alien. 5.9, 15m.


Start climbing right out of the creek left of the arete.


QDs for 5 bolts to the bolted belay.

The squeezing isn't egregious. A climber on Alien certainly won't trip on them, and this routes moves are distinct from that route. Temps matter a lot on this route! May 22, 2013
That's a bummer if you can clip the bolts of this while climbing Alien. A squeeze is a squeeze. Oct 28, 2009
@ least it's admitted that it's squeezed. Way too many newer routes out there that ruin the experience for its older neighbor. Oct 25, 2009

I used these new bolts to "onsight" Alien. All but the first bolt are in easy reach of the arete. It would take more discipline than I have not to clip them from that route. That's not the say Mr Potato Head isn't a quality route - but until I looked it up here I just assumed someone had bolted Alien. Oct 23, 2009
