Why skip out on the steller face climbing below Garbonzo Bean? Climb line of bolts by easest means (5.10d). One can place the alien and a small nut after the last bolt in the start of the crack. Continue up Garbonzo Bean (5.7) to the top.

4 out of 5 stars Great

Direct at the first bit is way harder than 10+. I went straight to the freezer burn belay up the face. This goes at about 11+

Dale Fox lead and I followed. Kind of a hard warm up for Deep Freeze.
