Description [Suggest Change]

Start left of "Eagles and Aliens" and about 20-30 ft right of the right leaning main gully/crack system on the left side of Alien Wall. Climb face past slightly tricky gear to vertical crack to small roof and bulges to top. A bolt added to protect the slightly runout face prior to the vertical crack.

Location [Suggest Change]

Middle of the face, just left of Eagles. See map.

Protection [Suggest Change]

FA done ground up without bolt. Single bolt added to help with the runout. Protect below the bolt with a 0.4, 0.3, and C3 Camalots depending on your comfort level. It is a bit thin. Above bolt medium cams and both a 2 and 3 inch protect well.

maybe on the hard side of 5.9, especially given the thin protection before the first bolt. Dec 19, 2011
