Description

This climb starts as the Second half of Strange Days, which is a rather boring 10a slabby climb, and don't expect to write home about it. However, The vertical kicks in with the second half, and the climb begins to feel much more like a boulder problem. From the crack next to Ice Station Zebra (must do) Super X-Ray Spectacles is the third climb to the left, and takes of right after reaching Strange Days anchor. As I recall the crux is THIN, but appeared to have two options. The shorter guys went right, while I went a bit left and yarded on a side pull to a thiner crimp. If You're here, I'd jump on the second half for sure, but don't go out of your way to send. (Strange Days is also the first half of Dragonfly 11d, but takes off left from the first anchor.)

This climb has a short, sequency crux. I think this would be a good first 12a(and yes I think it is 12a). Aug 12, 2011
