Eyeing the topout! Pretty climactic finish (depending on your point of view regarding groveling)  Starting up this awesome crack!  When I scoped this boulder out last year, there was a full-on stream where the pads sit.   Per my usual, here's a rough sketch of the Upper Alchemist.   Finishing on Shake Junt.
