Description 

Start half-sitting on the very large crimps, and move up to the crimp right below the odd-colored, spherical rock jutting out of the wall. Bring a foot up to the good, obvious foothold, and at this point you can either make a couple of small, difficult crimp moves to get to the next high, good crimp, or just try one large, reach-y move. Once you've done those, just make the average top-out. Remember - only the face of the wall is on, don't cheat by using any of the adjacent rock.

Location 

By the Space Boulder, find the dark, "cave-like" hole. Drop down into this hole and face the trail, and you'll be facing Sub-Commander T'pol. It should be obvious once you've found the hole. If you top-out right by the trail, you've done it right.

Protection 

Low enough that a mat isn't necessary, although you may want to put one over the rock at the base incase you fall back.

Thanks for adding this one! Sounds really fun, I’m excited to try it out. The odd colored spherical rocks are called "drop stones" and are glacially deposited chunks of granite and gneiss... crazy stuff!
