small gear up high on this one, green and blue alien. Also, when the crack starts traversing right, you can step high and clip a fixed pin. The party that did this ahead of us told us to watch out for the rope getting caught in the flake. not extending your cams after you clip a looong sling on the pin achieves this.

Hyperspace is a wonderful thin crack to an undercling where stamina and collected nerves will see you through to the anchors after a traverse back left.

Really, really fun. Bring small to medium nuts for the vertical part and small cams for the traverse.

Great climbing, I thought the flake was a bit spooky and fragile. I opted not to put a whole lot of gear behind it. One green camelot in the first jug undercling, then a bit of a runout through the traverse up and right. Spooky for a heavy guy like me feeling that flake flex... I don't think gear would hold behind that flake after teh crux.... PG-13! Who's with me?

There is no longer a fixed pin though there always seems to be some fixed gear.

quite fun, wish it was longer. the flake is solid and the gear is good, i don't know what people are talking about.
