Description

Perhaps the best overall route at the crag. Hosts the largest route in length, and more moves than any other route at Invasion.

Begin with the common start , then bust directly up through a small roof where a short power crux lies.

Wander a bit left off the bolt line and continue pulling on some large jugs spaced rather far away from each other.

Wander left and right through the bolt pattern, until you approach the last clip for a forearm melting finish.

Blowing it at the top results in an airy ride down.

Classic Route!

Location

Start as for "Close Encounters" but trend straight up instead of left.

Protection

Bolts (at the moment, 1 Removable Bolt is stuck in the headwall, not necessary for the route)

Now that the 7th bolt has been lowered, you can climb directly up from bolt 5 to bolt 7, eliminating the need to go out right to clip the 6th bolt, without running it out too far. This makes for a much smoother sequence through the roof, and makes this route even more enjoyable in my opinion. Feb 19, 2017
