Climb pumpy bulge down low to technical upper face. Be careful between the third and forth bolts (another bolt may be added to protect the harder climbing on the crimps). A first lead on the route can be safer by going left to the large flake prior to clipping the forth bolt.


The left end of the clean face, north of The Right Stuff.

This route was great fun. A pumpy crux on bomber holds down low, with a nice rest ledge before the vertical headwall above, which has some nice crimpers.

There is a TR right of Space Chimp to the same anchor (about 5.11/5/11+). The upper smooth face is harder than the lower overhanging section.
