Description

Pitch 1 - 5.9, 45'. From the ledge in the notch face climb up about 15 feet and mantle onto a ledge. Climb up another 15 feet of easy choss to the west shoulder of the Lighthouse. Tip toe along the shoulder past teetering blocks and scramble up some not so teetering blocks to a two bolt belay on the left edge of the summit block.

Pitch 2 - 5.10-, 15'. Short but rad! Step around the corner into instant exposure and follow three bolts through good patina to the summit.

Rappel: Same as all other Lighthouse routes, two 150' rappels down to the north slabs.

Location

Hike up the north side of the Lighthouse all the way to the notch.

Protection

5 slings
3 quickdraws

FYI for those wanting to blow their onsight of Spaceman by toprope rehearsing. From the summit you can do a short rap to the narrow ridge at the top of pitch 4 of Spaceman, do an exposed walk to anchors at the east end of the ridge (probably want to rope up or stay on rappel for the walk). Rap Spaceman with 2 ropes. Mar 13, 2016
