A difficult opening move gives way to a relaxed, wide crack. Half way up the route, take a sit down rest, then launch into the bolted face climb. The first two thirds of this bolted section climb a fantastic line of crimps and jugs through a shallow overhang. Once you've pulled the lip, though, "Lies and Deception" earns its grade...and name...easily with a short but thin and technical finish on a surprisingly bald face. Enjoy the whip!
Stellar movement, satisfying holds, and great bolt placement make this route another fantastic Area 51 climb!
In Pod #1, just left of Alien Observer, in the right hand side of the hollow where the "Wormhole" crack line is. Look for a very low first bolt (probably clippable from your tip toes if you're tall).
