Before and after the bulge felt like the crux to our party. Pulling into the stance before the roof is surprisingly difficult and I used several small C3s to get my first pieces.

The rest of the route pros up great with small to mid-size pieces up to #1 or #2 Camalots. The onsight crux was hanging onto slightly rattly finger and thin hand jams after the roof.

Current to this description, a slung block rap anchor is located at the meeting point of the Quest for Glory and Space Truckin' cracks. If you ignore this invitation you can continue on with 3.5" - 4" pro into a 5.8 extension to the two climbs ending at a bolted rap anchor. Be cautious if you only have a 60m rope and view the Space Truckin' route comments to get the full dish on rapping/TRing these routes.

The crux for me was definitely getting up to and over the roof. I had to pull some awkward offwidth/stem moves to get to the ledge under the roof, then some powerful lieback/jam moves to get over. Once over the roof, though, this route it fantastic. Great steep jamming to a double crack to a dihedral. One of my favorites at the crag, great for running laps on.
