L to R R to L Alpha
Another worthwhile stop on the Boulder Canyon obscure trad tour. Somewhat reminiscent of FM, but shorter, not as clean and less well-protected. Rolofson gives it an R-, though I found it to be adequately protected, though there is a bit of a runout at the crux. This climb looks a lot more licheny than it climbs.
The obvious, left-facing corner about 15' right of the second pitch of Amazing Face is most easily approached by heading up the gully right of Meteor Rhoadblock for about 50' then cutting left about 30' along a ledge (one 3rd class move) to the nice ledge at the base of the route.
I placed a couple of RPs, two or three Rocks in the #3 - #6 range, a #0.4 Camalot, a red Alien and a #3 Camalot and a #0 C3 (though not in that order). Another piece one size larger than the #3 Camalot might have been nice. Another finger-size cam could have been placed at the end of the crux but, placing it would be challenging and it might compromise a large flake which, if it went, would impart much ugliness on both the climber and the belayer.
