The good edge after the runout above the 4th bolt ...

  • Description 

    This is an amazing combination of Aerospace into the 5.11 finger crack of Aerial Book.

    Climb the bottom of Aerospace up past its 4th bolt (11b). After the 4th bolt make an exciting runout and reach left to a good edge. Once you grab the edge, downclimb a few feet to the left and you will be at the little tree that sits at the beginning of the Aerial Book finger crack. (The normal Aerospace route involves grabbing the good edge then would continue climbing up and right.)


    Aerospace is the beautiful arete just right of the first pitch corner of Aerial Book. The upper part of the pitch is the finger crack of Aerial Book and is the obvious thin splitter that starts just above a small tree.


    4 bolts on Aerospace + stoppers and finger size cams for the Aerial Book finger crack. Some gear can also be placed getting to the first bolt on Aerospace, but it's quality is a point of contention, as you can read on the Aerospace page. The pitch can be finished at the normal Aerial Book anchor (100 feet).
