Discovered while struggling on the neighboring project, this line was good enough to add fixed gear and create a separate line for.
Climb up initial slab at the large V-slot to reach the bottom of the first seam/crack in the bulge. Step right 4' along tenuous holds and stretch big to clip a bolt. Make a hard (crux) move to get through the bulge, clip again, and make another hard move to reach easier ground. Pleasant, milder climbing leads to the top.


Look for the system of discontinuous vertical seams 15' left of the large crack of O'Ryan's Belt. These begin at a bulge above the base slab, a few feet right of the right end of the high ledge system (that is, right of Starstruck ). This is the same start as Illegal Aliens.


Cams to 1", with emphasis on micro and small. Small Tri-Cams are helpful as well.
