The initial section requires some pretty thinky chimneying and is blank at times with tricky pro, so don't pass up a placement when you have one. Gain the crack and bring your Off-width boots for this moon-landing! Chicken wing, arm bar, heel-toe and pray your way up to the 1st belay in an alcove. Pitch two ascends the obstacle-course of chockstones and chimneying to the top. Very physical and dynamic climbing. That's one small step for man, one giant step for Wasatch-kind.


Around the corner from the Mexican Crack alcove, up through the scrub oak into the obvious chimney. 40ish feet o the right of 'Interplanetary Voyage."


Singles to #5 will work but a #6 will fit nicely in the main wide crack. An extra #2 wouldn't hurt either. A few smaller cams help protect the spicey start.
