Description

This route offers a variety of different moves and features. You get crimps, jugs, and side-pulls! Easy climbing up the first three bolts and you'll reach an arete which is the crux. Move off of a good side pull and grip down on a good crimp. There are fun foot placements on this route.

Location

This is the second route when you reach the crag. It is in the middle of Semi-Automatic and Lost Alien. The bolts are black.

Protection

6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. As of 4/15/2019 there are no permanent draws or chains on the anchors. These will be placed soon. You must place your own anchor on the 2 anchor hangers. To descend cleanly, you can traverse right on jugs to Little Green Alien.

Placing the second bolt, the first is visible in the dust below me. The rope on the left is placed static on semi automatic and pulled to the right on a bolt for little green alien. This route splits the two going up the prominent face.
