Description

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

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

Protection

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
