Description 

Punching Holes Through the Clouds of Jupiter is located on the north-facing, gray wall on the left side of The Headstone proper. This follows the obvious crack, which runs up to the ledge, half way up. The sport climb, Io, starts immediately left of this line.


Protection 

Standard rack. Rappel station fixed at the center of the ledge, at the top of the pitch.

I think this one is called 'Eros' in the new book. Pretty good route with an unanticipated crux of sorts at the bottom. Fairly sustained, good gear. It was really wet when we did it which made it kind of exciting.

Anchor area is a mess. A crowbar would be a big help.
