A bolted face! Start 5 ft left of dire wolf and follow a meandering bolt line on thin edges. Bring you're edging shoes for this one. More technical than pumpy. Resist the urge to grab the bolts for balance.
This route is long and the anchors are 20 ft higher than the end of the hard climbing. There are two options for descent. Option A is to rap to the anchors of dire wolf, 30 ft down and 10 ft to the right, then rap from there to the ground (a 60 will just barely make it). Option B is to use two ropes.
12'ish quickdraws, 1 small piece (finger size) to protect the beginning.

5.11b---Yellow alien /TCU protects the start AFTER you do some solo 5.10 climbing. Man this thing is fun! You can get down with a 70m. Have to down climb the first 5 feet, easy
New anchor per Conrad at the final ledge..Now possible to Rap all the way with a single sixty, be careful it is VERY close

Above the yellow alien, a BD#4 fits in the pod.
