Description

The crux of this climb starts after you clip the last bolt.

Location

Same as the beginning of Flying circus, go up the crack then climb on good feet (R) to first bolt. Rap from anchors on top.

Protection

a few nuts and some med. size cams, after the last bolt there is a gear placement at the exit move's--- gray ? red alien.

Not really my type of climbing...granite crystals and micro-edges for smearing finger pads and feet. Seemed harder than the rating. Perhaps a few crystals have broken off with use? May 25, 2016

I'd agree on 11a climbed as Ryan's topo, the line following much more of flying circus crack. I noticed bolts further down in the darker rock and came into it from climber right, next to the layback. The area around that first bolt was ridiculously hard, much harder than the climbing above.

Bring your edging shoes for this one, the smaller edges you can use the easier this route will feel. I used no friction smearing on this. May 30, 2017
