Just having fun. I appreciate the complete description to the photo. More photo contributors should do the same.

Janet climbing the wild (and steep!) knobby face.This is the mental crux of the route (at least for me), as you need to go about 15 feet on knobs and around the crest before you can set a piece. The technical crux is around where I set the green alien in the photo (midway through the crack). The crack takes good gear. Our highest piece before the crack petered out was a 0.75 cam. A yellow alien above the crux-protecting green alien is also nice to have.
