Good stances for pro.


This route starts in a low angle chimney behind a tree. It steepens and turns to a hand crack after 20 or 30 feet. The upper zig zag hand crack is the crux and is a bit on the grainy side. A good crack to test your hand jamming expertise. If you can do it without bleeding...bravo!! Two bolts for belay and lower off. It is named after a forming planet.


Standard rack to 3"

Not a great route, but you can do much worse.

Did this recently and thought it an OK route (1 of 5 stars). It has probably seen few ascents and as such was relatively clean.

BTW this route is not on Disaster Dome, but on "Wheelbarrow Rock" a smaller block/pinnacle just northeast of Disaster Dome's north face.
