Description 

Technical and balancy moves along a steep slab/face will see you through the crux, which eases higher to fun moves over a small roof with big holds. Much better than it looks and well worth doing if in the area.

Location 

This is the second route from the left and lies between Welcome to Planet M.F. on the left and Rebel Rebel on the right.

Protection 

8 bolts, bolted anchors

Less committing than Spiders from Mars, but more technical crux.

rating: 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c

Lower face crux is very height/reach dependent: Much harder for a climber much less than 5ft 7in tall with normal reach.

Upper face crux is interesting thoughtful climbing.

Getting to the first bolt is a bit tricky, getting toward 5.9

Top-Rope: Obvious after leading up the route to its left, "Welcome to Planet M.F."
