DescriptionGalactus (the "devourer of worlds") is a beautiful 60' offwidth roof to squeeze. The pitch is accessed via a 50' 5.9 squeeze chimney or an easy scramble to the right of the approach chimney. Begin on an intimidating ramp above the chimney, and invert off a chicken wing to establish yourself in the roof. Sidewind 15-20' out the roof past the lip, and continue with a graceless grovel to a 2-bolt anchor.
Although the climbing on this route is deceptively easier than your average invert offwidth, be wary of your sparse gear placements as a miscalculation will cause a horrendous/dangerous fall into the chimney below. This is a fantastic TR for anyone wanting to climb a partially inverted style roof.
