Plugging black aliens at the start


Start up a dihedral like feature face climbing and using the very thin crack for protection.

Pull over the easy roof/bulge this will deposit you on a small ledge.

From this ledge continue up the thin crack using jams, face holds and laybacks. There are plenty of good rests/stances along the way. About 2/3 of the way up this you will encounter the crux moves which involve a layback/jam and some face moves.


Before you hit the "main" part of the wall look for a small roof leading to a very thin crack with a chain anchor on top.


Gear to 1.5" mostly smaller.

Make sure to include micro cams (black/blue Alien)

Chain anchor (Easily reached from above to TR/Rap)
