DescriptionP1: Head up a left-facing corner system, move left, then continue up the corner to belay at obvious ledge. 10b
P2: Layback the crack then work up the chimney pod to base of roof, which is exited on the left with a crux reach to jug and next belay. 11b
P3: Up the V-slot/corner to belay on small ledge. 10c
P4: Traverse right and around the arete past fixed pins to belay. 10d
P5: Up from the belay and into the crack system to the trees. 10b
From the top of P5 either continue up to Astro Ledge or descend left via lovely tree-lined steep trail and series of fixed lines to the base of Zodiac Wall.
Route is shaded in the AM and extra cool due to geothermal air conditioning from adjacent mega chimney. The rock on P1-3 is clean and fractured with sharp 'alpine' feel.
