Forty feet to the right of Space Walk, the last route before a prominent gully. It is an adventurous lead up poorly protected flakes and a very thin dihedral with an intriguing crux entry move; worth doing.


mostly thin gear

This route pretty much starts in the same spot as Space Walk. Both routes start about 40 feet up and right of Head Over Heals.

Poorly protected flakes is an understatement. Granted, the moves are relatively tame (5.6 - 5.7) but if you pop off before you get gear at the start of the dihedral, there is indeed going to be a lot of splattering -- there's no gear to protect you. For this reason, it deserves an R rating.
