Start by climbing straight up from the ground through knobs and face holds (5.11-) just right of Little Jupiter, or by traversing in from SS Ultrabrutal (easier although unprotected for the first 25 feet or so. Climb the flake system up to the small overlap, clip the bolt and get ready to pull.


Just to the left of the giant tunnel, look for the bolt on the overlap (it may be hard to see as it is painted black).


I placed 1 Black alien, 1 Blue alien and 2 Green aliens (be sure to sling these appropriately), along with 3 quickdraws for the bolts. The anchor is bolted with chains. I gave it a PG13 rating as the start requires a bit of soloing before you get in the good gear about 25 feet off the ground, if you are capable of climbing the crux, this section will feel very very easy for you.
