Description:

Climb Unicorner for 20' then traverse right on a ledge past a bolt. Turn the bulge above and go up past 6 or 7 more bolts.

Descent Options:

Bartlett guide says rap off the top with two ropes, but I think it can be done with one. Or downclimb and rappel from top of Unicorner.

3 out of 5 stars Space Mountain

Rated 5.10a in Miramontes book, and I thought it was stout for the Jtree grade, so concur with the 5.10b here. Best not to place gear on the route to avoid rope drag, there is a bolt on top of the ledge. The move from that bolt to the face is the first crux (awkward). The traverse back left over the ledge/pod is a reachy crux face move. A third cruxy edge move awaits near the top. A sustained and pumpy face climb. Rap with a 70m.

2 out of 5 stars meh

some bolts seemed like they were in bad spots, and most of the holds are kind of loose.
