Pretty standard bullet gray slab climb for the area, with some interesting flaring crack features.

Descent: Rappel route.


Cross the creek wherever looks good to you on the East side of The Alien. Find a faint trail angling uphill and right, which gets more obvious as it cuts back left. Gain the crest, and make your way back down down the West side for about 100 feet until you come across the small, bullet gray NW facing slab. Belay at waist high bolt.


5 bolts to chains
