Curving crack system to the left of the nose. Climbs an absolute splitter 1inch crack through a pair of bulges up to the upper headwall where the wall leans back on ya. Plug those green aliens and run out the next 10 ft on steep jug hauling. Strenuous climbing over small gear. Classic

After noticing this really nice splitter walking up to the wall, I thought about leading it. When the guy from colorado offered a belay, I accepted. Climbing goes smoothly over a pair of bulges if not strenuous over 5.8/9 terrain. No rest spots and by the time i got to the steep part, I was spent. My first attempt, went fairly well, but I spent too much energy climbing static through overhanging pockets to finish the top out. I got to the top and franticly clutching for purchase, I peeled and took about a 12 footer onto a solid green alien. Went back up to try again, leap-frogged my alien to a higher spot. Pumped out again at the top out and put another whipper onto the greeny. After resting a little longer, I finally found the correct sequence and topped out. What a climb. Very impressed with the wall in general. Tall routes about 80 ft. Quality rock, solid basalt. Unique climbing, splitter cracks and overhanging jug hauls. It seemed to have everything.
