BETA PHOTO: Abalokov Rocks

Description 

On the right side of sector one is a face with an incipient crack running up it. This incipient crack ascends to a prominent roof. One can traverse left around this roof and ascend the left facing corner to an anchor station. This is Abalokov Rocks. This route is to the right of the sport route named Too Many Ledges.

The paper guide lists this route as 5.10. Even on my worst hangover days, this route is not 5.10, but a wonderful 5.8.

Protection 

Trad. The pro off the ground to the roof is tricky, at best, hence the PG13 rating. There is good pro in the left facing corner. Aliens and small hexes useful here. There is a thread after the crux move.
