Description

It is a unique start of God's Elastic Acre without using the start of Stranger than Friction. Start to the left of the beginning of Stranger Than Friction but to the right of Stranger Direct using the face. Should start right below the first bolt of Stranger than Friction. Keep out on the face, well to the left of the beginning flake for Stranger than Friction. Move up over the overlap and up the face to the first bolt of Stranger than Friction. Then move up and to the right, to the second bolt of God's Elastic Acre. Follow God's Elastic Acre up and to the left. Use the 4th bolt of Stranger than Friction and follow Stranger than Friction up and to the right to the top of Stranger than Friction. Here you can build an anchor and top rope multiple routes or head up and to the top. Between the "anchors" for Stranger than Friction and the top, there is no protection. So, be careful.

VARIATION: At the cross-over the route and head left to the anchors of Texas Radio/God's Elastic Acre to the top. You can build an anchor system here and TR other routes or you rap from the top of the first pitch. Use the anchors for Texas Radio/God's Elastic Acre to belay from if you are heading to the top and the two rap rings. Rap rings are up and to the left of the anchors in the "gap" between two horizontal slab "eyebrow" pieces.

Location

To the left of the start of Stranger than Friction and also to the left of it's flake. To the right of the 2nd bolt of Stranger than Friction.

Protection

Pitch 1: 5 bolts and 2 top anchors
Pitch 2: No bolts and two rap rings
